Santigold's Master of my Make Believe
Santigold released her new album Master of my Make Believe yesterday. This is her second album, the follow up to her 2008 debut album. The new album has many guest musicians from bands such as the Yeah Yeah Yeah's and TV on the Radio. The album has obvious Jamaican and African influences. The record has driving percussion and beats while still feeling breezy and fun. It will make for a perfect Summer listen. The first album was great but was kind of all over the place. It dealt in many styles, from rap to goth to 80's pop songs, the album had it all. It did show her range but it was difficult to determine who she was as an artist. With this second album she seems to have answered this question. Master of my Make Believe is consistent from beginning to end.
I like music. I like to spread the word on great bands or performers that inspire me. I never illegally download. I feel strongly artists should always get their money. I also love physical product. Nothing like a good gatefold vinyl album.
