Named after a truly bizarre infomercial from the 80's, the Santigold album is chock full of engaging rump-shakers, including "Creator", "L.E.S. Artistes," and "Lights Out." White and Hill see to understand that there must be real songs behind the glitter in order for the music to have any real staying power. Not that the pair scrimp on the flourishes, however. There's a sense of fun that pervades the proceedings, and there's just not much out there that you could compare the album to musically.
Already riding an increasingly large wave o' buzz, Santigold's efforts on this debut album should serve to give them a career, not just a few minutes of indie fame.
