Episode 66 - Santogold by Santigold
Indie darling and savvy industry operator Santi White has been involved in music than you might think. Formerly and A&R rep for Epic Records, she’d been producing and writing songs for other artists for years (as well as kicking around in a punk band for much of the early 00s) before her debut album dropped in 2008.
The result of all that time working behind the scenes meant that Santi emerged with a polished, considered and eclectic record that belies its debut album status. Is it perhaps too carefully engineered? That’s one of the many things we discuss on today’s episode as we take a tour of her career thus far, whilst Chris and Weaver get into it a couple of different topics. It’s a pretty interesting discussion all round.
As ever, it boils down to whether or not you think this album is worthy of inclusion in our discography. Vote below.
Then do us a solid and tell all yr friends.
