New Music Video: Santigold – The Keepers

Watch Santigold’s just released video for the latest single – The Keepers – off of Master of My Make Believe. This track has that electro-retro feel, though in a new-wavy and not so much a funky type of way. Though this track is a bit light on the rhythm and bass for our typical tastes, … Continue reading
