In preparation for Osheaga, I've been ferociously downloading all of the artists I hope to see there: The Shins, Metric, M83, Madeon, etc. When I finally got a chance to listen to Santigold's new album, "Master of My Make Believe," I knew I'd found the ultimate summer album. Just as Phoenix's "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" defined the summer of 2009 (and 2010 and 2011...), I can easily see Santigold's latest in heavy rotation during the endless Atlanta rush hour.
In honor of the first single off the album, I'm dedicating this week's style files to "Disparate Youth." Filmed in Jamaica (where she recorded much of the album), it's odd to see her wearing pants around a beach, but hats off to her mixing the black and white striped bustier with floral pants.
