MUSIC: New Music From Santigold, Lana Del Ray, Azealia Banks, And More!

Since her debut song, “212,” blew up this spring Azealia Banks has been dropping tracks all over the Interwebs. There was “Jumanji” and most recently “Aquababe.” But honestly, neither of those songs really felt like a worthy follow-up. “Liquorice,” on the other hand, is the track we’ve been waiting for. The video finds the hip-hop wunderkind channeling a cross between Clint Eastwood and Aaliyah in Queen of the Damned. The song itself, from Banks’ debut EP, 1991, has a kind of retro ’90s house beat. It’s a perfect party track!

      I love Santigold’s music but she is as fake as that wig. Watch her interviews. Every other word is ‘like’ this and ‘like’ that. Typical hipster trash. But the album is a banger.

      Don’t do as I did and look into who she really is, as a person, as portrayed by her handlers. She is annoying. At least MIA is consistent and the creativity isn’t a front for a bubble gum princess with no more brains than a pillowcase.

      Liquorice is already my club track for the summer. Hopefully Nicki Minaj will just disappear.

      If you missed it — and you probably did, because it was by a 60-year-old has-been — look up Dayglo Reflection by Bobby Womack (featuring Lana del Rey) on Spotify. Great, great tune, and speaking just for myself I identify more with a 60-year-old has-been than some manufactured hipster.

      I actually don’t like National Anthem. I think it’s one of those filler tracks in the album that could’ve been better taken up by songs from her Lizzy Grant days like Dum Dum or Knda Outta Luck. Also, I would’ve preferred it if she had just chosen Off to the Races for the new single. Anyway… more power, Liz.

      National Anthem is my favourite and no the lyrics arent shallow like some suggest. It’s lana interpreting our money obsessed society.

      The Demo is alot better and bring more life to the song.

      National Anthem is my favourite and no the lyrics arent shallow like some suggest. It’s lana interpreting/taking digs at our money obsessed society.

      The Demo is alot better and bring more life to the song.
