After a lengthy 4 year-long "hibernation," Indie Rock's favourite Philly-bred
Master of My Make-Believe was additionally out-fitted with the production work(s) of a few Indie Rock greats: Dave Sitek, Nick Zinner, and multi-instrumentalist Greg Kurstin. While Santogold (2008) yielded a number of playlist-closing POWER tracks like "L.E.S. Artistes" and "Creator," Master of My Make-Believe seems to be leaning in a more Dance-based New Wavey direction. One can assume that the distinctive rhythms of [musical cities] Los Angeles, Jamaica, and New York were picked up during recording sessions. When describing the album to Billboard back in Summer 2011, Santigold said that:
"I still have the songs that sound very Electronic and Clubby, but I have a couple ballads on this one -- my own type of ballads, where they just sound big, like the way some old Kate Bush or Peter Gabriel songs were..."Master of My Make-Believe will see a wide release through Downtown Records this coming Spring; Although a firm release date has yet to be set @ press time. Fans should expect to see/hear Santigold's official lead single within the next month or 2. Hey, maybe it'll end up being one of those interesting-sounding "Power Ballad"-esque jams.
