After four years of hide and seek in which blogs blew up at the sudden release of any track with her name attached to it, it’s now time for Santigold to present Master of My Make Believe. Through chopped pianos, the clink of glass bottles, and the peaking blast of motorcycle engines, her new release accounts for 21st century details of life from the heart’s center to the mind’s periphery. In her pen and in her voice, the breadth of substance presented in Santigold‘s songs is immediate and complex. There are valleys here wherein the drudge of daily living is met with caution and confronted by mortality, but underneath it all there is the celebration of each person’s power and vision to fight toward what they believe. Consider this your invitation.
