6a00d8341ca4b653ef0111685d1a88970c-800wiSantigold – iTunes Live From SoHo

Santigold is one of the more interesting and colorful bands of the alternative world. Front woman, Santi White offers a very unique blend of sounds and beats to create a strange but enjoyable ambiance. It floats throughout all of her songs and masks this singer/ songwriter in a kind of mysterious haze that can only occasionally be penetrated. She is something to be reckoned with and this live performance tests her showmanship.

Santigold’s most recognized song, “L.E.S. Artistes” is an incredible live track. The electronic synthesizers, guitar, bass and hard drums mix with White’s voice and lyrics to create an incredibly unique sound. Although she doesn’t have the greatest voice, she knows her range and doesn’t try to overshoot it. And the range  and intensity make her sound more like a man. She does a great job interacting with her audience and flows flawlessly from song to song.

The album is a great preview of what’s to come from this very experimental and interesting group. The live show is personal and Santigold creates a vibe that rivals some of the greatest grunge acts from the 90’s.

Best Track: “My Superman”

I am so happy that Eminem has decided to burst back onto the hip-hop scene with his unique style that has established him as one of the best. The song is a parody of all the artists that were created by the public’s consciousness. And he doesn’t hold back. He makes fun of everyone including Brett Michaels, Jessica Simpson, Sarah Palin, Amy Winehouse and Lindsey Lohan. Nothing is off limits for this crude-mouthed rapper. It’s sheer brilliance. If the lyrics weren’t such a parody, this song could be considered one of his best.

I totally agree with what you’re saying here..

Eminem is def one of the best rappers alive in my opinion.. and it just makes him even more hilarious that he always releases a goofy track as his first.. the thing is that people see these tracks and are like why is this song so stupid sounding or w/e but the reality here is that em is dropping a song that is satirical in nature and is actually brilliant.. i’m desperately waiting for this dudes 2 new albums dropping this year..
