Santi White is a badass. There’s no other way to express the feeling you get from listening to her first full-length since 2008's "Santogold," back when that was her stage name. For "Master of My Make-Believe," Santigold reunites with old friends and collaborators Diplo and Switch and completely disregards petty things like notions of what a “pop song” is or how a “rap song” should sound. Listen to “Look At These Hoes” and long for romantic notions of a much-grittier NYC past; then shift to the single “Freak Like Me,” which sits reggae rhythms and electronic drums at the same table and makes them eat all their vegetables before they can leave. The song “The Keepers” is pure, unadulterated New Wave, and I’ll fight you if you disagree. Pardon the hyperbole, but this album is that good. Listen by any means necessary.
