Starting her career as a talent scout for a major record label, singer and songwriter Santi White emerges as Santigold (formerly "Santogold"), whose new album drives dub and '80s-pop influences from song to song. Sometimes basement rock, sometimes Bananarama-soundclash, Santigold is a vehicle for White's well drawn late night fight lines and robot-witch scat on the beat. Warbling bass, island upbeat, and deep-south snap provide foundation for White's whispering lilts and tension-ridden verses.
