Santigold

What's My Muthafuckin Name?
...Santigold

Change the graffiti on the bathroom wall, get your tattoo fixed, get your t-shirt airbrushed and change the name on your year end list- Santogold is now Santigold. She's not telling you why, that's just how it is. No unpronounceable symbol, no numbers where they shouldn't be, no random capitalization, just plain ass Santigold so remember that.

Downtown/Lizard King released Santigold's self-titled breakthrough CD in April and it instantly became one of 2008's most acclaimed albums garnering international raves. Critics and radio have championed the record's standout tracks "L.E.S. Artistes", "Creator" and her latest single "Shove It".

I can guess why.

Don't you mean Santi(Au)???

ps - The Santogold/ Diplo mix that came out last year is criminally underrated!

I will never forgive her, whatever her name is, for exposing me to Trouble Andrew. That shit was painful.

Anyone who has a Santogold or Santigold tatoo is retarded.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2009 1:46 PM

it's because her real name is Santi White, so some research

This is the post where Brooklyn Vegan's journalistic integrity matches TMZ.

"PUFF DADDY HAS LITERALLY CHANGED HIS NAME TO PUFFY! LITERALLY!"

@lol

Uh, no... cause she was potentially being sued by an 80's nyc performance artist/entertainer.

Ben, rejoice in the knowledge that you do not equal "douche". Huzzah!

Correct! Ben = perpetual vaginal discharge.

Sigh. For those of us who, you know, kind of like Santigold--thanks for the heads up.

Posted by Harmon | February 11, 2009 4:14 PM

Thanks for the heads up? Your life is so complicated that you need a heads up on a name change?

Your life is so pointless that this is what bothers you?

Santogold is a new and a popular enough artist who had to legally change her artist name - probably to avoid a lawsuit. Sorry haters, but that is news, helpful and discussion worthy.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2009 4:36 PM

She will always be SantOgold the overhyped to me.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2009 5:04 PM

Artist formly known as Santogold sounds better.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2009 5:06 PM

Her voice sucks. She is a nasally narrative "singer" who speaks and then goes really high trill and her "beats" sound like nickelodeon shite.

It's pretty groundbreaking for a bunch of hipsters on an indie blog to say something about the black people music being bad. Never seen anything like that before in my life.

Santishit or Shittygold

Fuck the name change, I need a minute to inquire: an MIA ripoff that rips off Tegan & Sara? Come on, is that something we really needed? Did we even need a Tegan & Sara version of Tegan & Sara? I miss TATU.

This blog is so hateful. From now on everyone has to say something nice about the previous poster.

Kate Buss, your hair looks nice.

Thanks, Anon! I like your Converse! And I'm still ontopic, ZZZOMG.

Furthermore, her cover of "The Guns of Brighton" will now be "The *Nuns* of Brooklyn."

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2009 11:27 PM

um, it's prob because her name is santi. if anything THIS is less confusing. identity crisis much?

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2009 11:34 PM

Santogold would like to buy a vowel, please. Prompted by a lawsuit from Santo Gold, "a jeweler, filmmaker and infomercial-based salesman" whose main claim to fame is the unreleased sci-fi movie "Blood Circus," the singer has changed her name to Santigold. [Guardian.co.uk]
