I host "Train of Thought" every Friday 3-5 a.m. Central on 88.1 KDHX. As usual, I had a good time putting together my list of top 10 albums and singles of the year.
Santigold's sophomore release is anything but dull: "Master of My Make-Believe" provides a crowd-pleasing, uptempo fusion of electronic music, hip-hop and pop that serves as a soundtrack for summer.
Santigold is a proud child of the '80s. Her genre-jumping songs are thoroughly modern. Yet they usually carry an '80s element, whether it's the Goth rock of Siouxsie and the Banshees or the electronic new wave of Devo or the punk rock of Bad Brains.
