Santigold - I Don't Want [Vinyl LP]
Regular price $25.00
The Gold Fire Sessions summons the ghosts of dancehall hits. Dub goes well with glossy pop but the combination sometimes resembles the island-inspired singles of more mainstream acts like Major Lazer and PARTYNEXTDOOR. The du jour familiarity of the music might make it seem that Santigold is pulling from a convenience store of readymade cool instead of offering an authentic upgrade on her long-simmering indie signature. But from the start of her career, all the way back to her 2000s Philly-based punk band Stiffed, dancehall, grime, and ska influences have always gilded Santigold’s releases. Santigold doesn’t sound like her peers, her peers probably sound like Santigold.
