SANTIGOLD YOU GUYS! She survived the o -> i changeover in her name, and now she’s got a new record. Following her mixtape for Mad Decent, her new single is produced by Switch (Major Lazer) and Buraka Som Sistema. The new song is loud, percussive, a bit chaotic. Cody Critcheloe of SSION (I know I didn’t make a top albums of the year but SSION’s Bent was definitely my number one. Or two; I never figured it out). Anyway. the results are below and you might be very pleased.

You can download “Big Mouth” at her website.

Keep yr eyes peeled cos Cody has another video for MNDR.

So maybe all I do now is blog Korallreven mixes but WHATEVER. This new one isn’t exactly new but isn’t exactly old. Isn’t that fascinating? The mix CD came with purchase of An Album by Korallreven and features many cuts from their previous dream-y mixes. It’s nearly an hour long and totally gorgeous. I ripped the CD and put it up here for you to download. Enjoy it!
