Santigold @ Bowery Ballroom, 12/10/2012 (more by David Andrako)
As you may have seen last night, HBO's Girls won big at the Golden Globes, grabbing both Best Comedy series and Best Actress for creator/star Lena Dunham. At the same time Dunham was giving her acceptance speech, Season 2 of Girls (now featuring Donald Glover as Hannah's new boyfriend) was making its debut on the pay cable channel.
The soundtrack to Girls just came out last week and one of the songs exclusive to it is Santigold's "Girls." We've got the premiere of its video right here in this post. Shot here in NYC the cool little clip features girls from all walks of life (and all ages) lip-synching to the track and you can watch it below. The Girls soundtrack also features Sleigh Bells, Fleet Foxes, Robyn, Belle & Sebastian and more.
Santigold played Bowery Ballroom back in December and her only upcoming live date is at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on February 9. Video and Girls OST artwork and tracklist below...

Active Child @ Emo's Inside
"With immaculate vocals that are almost as enchanting as a Gregorian chant, ex-choir boy Pat Grossi, better known as Active Child, has put together an album that is enthralled in a romantic mystery of love. Active Child was once part of the Philadelphia Boys Choir as a youngster and is also fluent in playing the harp. Even though he is being compared to artists like James Blake and Bon Iver his musical background has given him the space to create music that is just as intriguing to the ear." [Karmaloop]Active Child is out on tour now, working their way towards NYC for a September 10th show at Bowery Ballroom with Com Truise and the UK's Young Athletes League. Want to go? We have a pair of tickets to give away. Contest details with more tour dates, a remix of Hanging On by White Sea, and pictures from Active Child's show on 9/2 at Emo's in Austin, below...
