Honda Civic is promoting its 2013 sedan with a commercial comparing the vehicle to other technological innovations. Fittingly for such a forward-thinking ad, the company chose to use the music of a groundbreaking singer-songwriter.
Last night (Jan. 13) was a big one for 'Girls,' with the HBO series and its creator/star Lena Dunham winning two awards at the Golden Globes. The show also returned to the air for its second season, and in conjunction with that comes the 'GIRLS – Volume 1’ soundtrack, a collection of tunes associated with the show from the likes of Belle & Sebastian, fun., Fleet Foxes and the Vaccines.
Santigold got the crowd grooving to her tunes during a Saturday afternoon set at Bonnaroo 2012. It's cool that Santigold let the audience onstage, but where are her own dancers going to do their thing?
She took her time putting the finishing touches on her new album, but now that Santigold is finished with 'Master of My Make-Believe,' she's hitting the ground running -- and fans can expect to hear more music in the not-too-distant future, including her collaboration with Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt.
Santigold (née Shanti White) has staked a claim for being an Afro-Caribbean cyborg ambassador from a retro future—which would be an awesome gig, if the field weren't so crowded: see M.I.A., Nicki Minaj, Rihanna.
