Santagold's self titled release is easily one of the must have albums of 2008. The 80s influence pays homage to Missing Persons, Josie Cotton, Musical Youth, The Police and others. The world beats and funkified modern vibe had us thinking this was MIA after listening to "Creator". It's also the first new release we've listened to from start to finish while thoroughly enjoying every track. Thank you Santogold for giving us something fresh in the first half of 2008.
