  1. Well, I’m intrigued. Still not used to Santigold as opposed to Santogold, though, just doesn’t seem right…

    part of me is really excited about this on grounds that david byrne is doing something that everyone else seems to think is a strange idea. (basically what his career has been built on). the other part of me can’t help but feel let down that tori amos is involved. ever since she got involved with those heavy-handed animal rights tv guilt trip spots, I’ve had a hard time keeping that and her music separate.
