Santigold at Terminal 5

10 Jun

I saw Santigold at Terminal 5 last night and got the great suprise of both Amanda Blank and Spank Rock joining her. They also did a great job linking up some remixes and collaborations with the original song especially with Diplo’s mixes who comes out with Major Lazer this weekend.

What I was struck with is this music is so produced that it doesn’t quite translate to an on stage performance. The collaborations, remixes and production are amazing but I could never tell what “the band” was doing or whether Santigold was singing. Spank Rock was energetic but the real fun is hearing his lyrics and you couldn’t really hear him in his delivery. It seemed more like an industry party than a tight performance.

Since Yuppie Dance Party has written about or featured songs with everyone in the show previously besides the really bad death metal?/ska/I don’t even know opening band I pretty much had to write about it. Sadly though I’m realizing I don’t have really anything new to say

Here are some good songs with Spank Rock, Santigold and Amanda Blank, if you weren’t playing them while reading the above you are probably bored. I am sorry.
