S is for Santogold

Santogold

I’ve posted about Santogold before…but now that she’s turning into the next “hipster it-girl” (Or whatever phrase you’d like to attach to her success), I feel the need to keep up with her.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s the song created for Converse featuring Pharrell + Santogold + Julian Casablancas “My Drive Thru.”

Pharrell + Santogold + Julian Casablancas – My Drive Thru

And the video/commercial…

Can’t say that I really enjoy the song. Rather than being a well-executed, synthesized performance by three talented musicians, it sounds more like three artists, with three distinct and separate sections doing their individual thing over a Pharrell beat.

From Stereogum, here’s the Diplo rmx of Santogold “Starstruck”

And a b-side from rcrdlbl

There’s my Santi update.

Until later.
