Pitchfork

Santi White used to work in A&R, which gives her put-downs on debut single "Creator" a professional air: "Sit tight I know what you are/ Mad bright but you ain't no star." As Santogold, White is putting her knowledge of star quality into practical effect. At its best, her album's cross-genre confidence is dazzling, combining dub, new wave, and hip-hop to create some of the year's freshest pop. At its worst, it feels annoyingly overthought.

A debut packed with playful twist to the pop genre with its strong use of punchy instrumentation and exciting fusion of reggae, punk rock and dance. The gold-vomit in the art cover is an essential indicator that this would be a blast front to back.

One of the best of 2008, and sorely underrated.

Santigold has some awesome and unique approaches to pop, but her execution always seems off to me. But, when she's on, she's really on.

Favorite Tracks: Shove it, Creator
