94. Santogold: L.E.S. Artistes

Found on: Santogold (2008)
Picked by: RN

Santogold (now known as Santigold) is a black singer who loves punk and '80s pop, and her music shows it. On L.E.S. Artists the verses are early '80s new wave by way of '00s new new wave, and the chorus is dreamy no wave a la Sonic Youth. By the way, L.E.S. is an acronym for Lower East Side. That's not knowledge you need to enjoy the song, but I thought you might like to know.
