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.

3371917114_df6890a7a0_b1Ever since I saw Rye Rye I’ve been trying to get a hold of everything she sings on until her mixtape comes out. She doesn’t have too much stuff, especially her own. She’s sung for quite a few guys, like The Count & Sinden, Diplo, and Blaqstarr. I found this remix of “Shake it to the Ground” which is really really hot.
