Don't really know anything about her or have any interest but this track is alright:
Reminds me of M.I.A.
Santigold: perhaps some Irrational Decisive type, just probably NOT ESFp; and/or she's what I originally thought -- SLE-Ti (Harmonizing subtype) [SLE-IEI?]; or IXI
" . . . . I know someday they'll make a martyr out of me . . . ."
- clucero8908: 'You guys are all wrong. It's actually about her never truly feeling comfortable in her femininity (most tomboys are more comfortable in their masculinity than their feminity) "Ooh oh look so pretty, now you're just so sweet, But see how far you can get..." She's aware of how many women take advantage of their femininity, by playing the role of the pretty damsel in distress, but because she isn't that kind of girl she says it as metaphorical spitting, looking down at those women. So she's making something with what's in her head, by deciding she is a lady, she's made up her mind, embracing herself for what she is --a woman with a masculine mind.'
- knocknockearth: “Thanks Santigold for [her] sometimes moody . . . yet uplifting musical expression.”
" . . . . I've bridled all my rage / You won't make me back down / I can hear you calling / Know you won't understand / But I'm near you now . . . ."

'Santogold: Santogold [Downtown, 2008]
From a punky ska base, she comes up with a pop-dance amalgam that's edgy and friendly at the same time. An established fringe bizzer at 32, she supposedly tried to make a commercial record before finding herself in thrall to her muse and her collaborators. But from here she sounds like someone for whom it's no more provocative to begin the signature "Creator" shrieking like a seagull than to set "Lights Out" to a melody so fetching it would have been considered a sellout back when "new wave" meant pushing the envelope. Right now her main message is just to do all this. If enough people like it, she has the aura of someone who might push the envelope. A-'

Kristen Pfaff and Kurt Donald Cobain didn't like the scene anyhow
