Santogold: L.E.S. Artistes (Lizard King/Atlantic) Wherein we catch a unique phenomenon: a lone black female singer songwriter bucking the usual trend/stereotype of singing bling/consumerist tales of getting the man and the money. There's something of the Anglophile in her that comes with the clipped, nasally delivery, rockist/electro pop backing and the deployment of a dub wise pop bubbler on the flip. If I'm sounding a bit breathless, then maybe I'm getting excited at the prospect of a girl living up to my expectations of one Nelly Furtado.Probably our single of the week, in a perfect world. Goddamn the sun's even out! First single of the week contender. Yo i'm Brian, and not one to meddle with the heavyweight words of our Mingo, I just wanna state that this is one of those amazing tunes I just cannot shake from my head. It's like a bolt of lightning to me, a subtle mid-tempo pop beauty with a blinding 80's radio twist. She's like a M.I.A./Liz Frazer hybrid singing a classic Cyndi Lauper tune and sends huge shivers up my spine everytime the chorus kicks in. One to unite the crowds at the end of a tough night clubbing, this is this years 'Umbrella', totally perfect, like a glug of posh brandy in a cold avalanche.
