everyone loves to compare santogold to mia. i do not. both, however, happen to rock.
from Santogold’s mixtape with Diplo (yeah philly love!), Top Ranking, here’s santi’s Get It Up (Radioclit Mix feat. M.I.A. and Gorilla Zoe).
im hoping they collaborate more, and with the whole philly / diplo / spank rock connection, maybe ill get my wish…
lykke li – little bit
discovered lykke back in april, and have been obsessed ever since. understated, playful, and absolutely brilliant. love those swedes.
yeasayer – 2080
when i was looking for an apt here back in march, this one girl who’s place i looked at in the marina. very sweet girl, kenyon alum, totally marina. she was funny, though – she had just moved out of a loft in soma where she was living with her hipster friends, and she was like, i go to the yeasayers! im indie! and of course i had no idea who the yeasayers were at this point. but to the point: this song is fantastic. layered, textured, syth-laden… just gorgeous.
