I'm kind of obsessed with Santogold. I heard her song, "L.E.S. Artistes", on KEXP awhile ago & have been trying to figure out who she is & how to get her album. Well, her album came out earlier this week. I bought it online, but haven't received it yet. I can't wait. I think it's going to be my CD of the summer.
I read in a magazine recently that Santogold was the songwriter for Res. I think I'm maybe 1 of 100 people who bought that album. Res was popular for a hot minute when I lived in NYC. I still secretly listen to it & now, knowing that Santogold was the songwriter for the album, understand my attraction to her.
TiVo recorded Conan the other night & Santogold was the musical guest. I'm really obsessed now after seeing her on Conan. I love her.
I went to YouTube & found this. Enjoy:
