Santigold Releases New Song: “Big Mouth”

Posted in Album Update, Music News, Song Download with tags , , , on Thursday, January 19, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

Santigold has finally named her much-anticipated second album Master of My Make-Believe. This album took awhile to write because she is such a perfectionist and her hands are on every aspect of her music. Santi White is the Queen B of the operation that used to go by the name of Santogold until a supposed legal allegation came about and forced the name change.

The “Big Mouth” video was released yesterday and features her famous militant dancers. These dancers are why I enjoyed the Santigold show as much as I did back in the Summer of 2009. “Big Mouth” is also available on her site for download. All you have to do is sign up for her mailing list and if you have ever listened to her music, that is a no brainer.

GZA Live @ Lollapalooza

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 by Tim Althaus

I have to say, GZA has to be top 10 for sure. Here is some footage of The Genius performing “Liquid Swords” at Lollapalooza this year live with Santigold. I watched this video and had to start listening to the album Liquid Swords right away, shit’s way to classic to not listen to on a regular basis. You can hit the jump to watch another video with some very brief clips of performances from other tracks, GZA talking about what other projects he would love to be a part of and the feature of the Clan.

Major Lazer release music video for “Hold The Line”

Posted in Audio, Music News, Random with tags , , , , , , , on Sunday, May 31, 2009 by Erik Burg

major lazerThe super group of Diplo and Switch along with “a Jamaican commando who lost his arm in the secret Zombie War of 1984 that cruises around on a rocket-powered skateboard and chills with nude Rihanna” have produced not only one of the most fun tracks of the year, but now hold the title for best music video of the year as well. It features a desperado-like entrance for one of the greatest fictional musicians ever, segueing into the amazing surf guitar and Nokia brick phone samples “Hold The Line” is now famous for along with Santigold on the mic (overload anyone?). The second half of the video also shows some of the coolest looking action figures I’ve seen in a long time, too bad Mad Decent doesn’t have any in production considering the way the Major Lazer shirt sold at SXSW. So check it out, have a laugh, and enjoy the mp3 if you loved the video. 

Major Lazer’s debut album Guns Don’t Kill People, Lazers Do is out 6/16 on Mad Decent. Pre-Order.

MP3: Major Lazer – “Hold The Line”

BONUS! This awesome “N64 Kid” remix video set to some great “Hold The Line” chops. Enjoy to the max!

Santigold live at First Avenue

There isn’t much that could be said about the lovable enthusiastic crowd-pleasing performance from Santigold at First Avenue this Thursday (May 28, 2009) that wasn’t recapped already. Santi’s main man Jon Jon (..same dude that got that extended shout out from the stage; seriously how’s she know know that well, man?) compiled a great list of links of people who have already reviewed the night, so I’m doing my best to bring something unique to you all.

As such, here’s my view from the night via video and photos, right from the middle of the dance floor; somewhat out of my element, I’ll just say that I was made to feel right at home amongst the flailing arms and sweat bodies by the time the show hit full stride. We’ll start things off with “Creator”, and get this MPLS internet dance party started like no other….
