TRACK RECORD

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

Santigold’s latest single, “The Keepers,” is one of our favorite tracks from her latest album, The Master of My Make-Believe. The song owes more than a little to Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill”—the beat, those synths—but it’s definitely its own excessively danceable creature. The video delivers some searing, tongue-in-cheek commentary on American life, with Santi done up in a blonde wig, her synthetically white nuclear family sitting down to a radiation-green dinner as the outside world—represented here as a drive-by shooting—attempts to force its way into their cloistered world.

    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 LOOOOOOOVE Lana Del Rey

    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.

  • MJ (different from the other one)
