EDITORS’ NOTES

99 Cents continues Santigold’s string of beautifully weird, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink pop extravaganzas. But this time, there’s a particular reverence for New York's '70s and '80s underground that runs through its best tracks. “Big Boss Big Time Business” is a dubbed-out dancehall jam that looks to Ze Records, early electro, and No Wave for inspiration, while “Rendezvous Girl” is a slice of breathy New Wave that goes down easy. Even when Santi goes big and soulful on the island-flavored opener, you can't help but feel Debbie Harry's spiritual guidance. There's no putting a price on mutant pop this thrilling.

I'm back in the 80s

Fun album! I love all the songs, some of them taking me back to Friday nights watching 80s teen classics and the background music that accompanied the AquaNetted bangs,teased hair, blue eyeshadow, and wrist-fulls of bracelets. I can't wait to see her live in April!

Queen Santi

We waited and waited but good things come to those who wait. Love the new single and looking forward for her finally getting the recognition she deserves.
