Final Analysis: 5 Finger Review: Santogold


Santogold has been getting alot of hype about her self-titled debut album. It's well-deserved too, given the hot singles she's previously released. The album does deliver but not all-the-way. I consider it a "creeper" because that is exacty what it does - creeps up on you ... the more i listen the more i like. But it still has some lackluster moments.

Pros:
• "Creator"
• "Lights Out"
• "Unstoppable"
• "You'll Find A Way (Switch & Sinden Remix)"

Cons:
• I wish the overall production had a little more "Flash" to it

Final Analysis: solid debut - 3 Fingers (out of 5) Words by:Rontronik

Sneaks of the Week

Refined footwear for the RENaissance Man.
CLAE
Yea I know they been out for a minute but one of our resident kicks connoisseurs Noisette aka the Internet Indiana Jones had to put the brand through his rigorous testing (basically how many head turns he gets in the streets of NYC).
Now he blesses you with the hottest thing since tar on a Brooklyn street on a 100-degree summer day.

Every event is now covered:
Boating in the Hamptons,
The invite to "that" party (you know the one you were NEVER getting into).
Copping the fresh Obey t-shirt with the sick cargo shorts for spring (of course… while in Barcelona),
Driving down Santa Monica Blvd in the new Land Rover…
Or just plain stuntin' thru soho on a perfect Saturday. CLAE fills the need.

Blacren introduces you to.. CLAE enjoy.

Noisette's formula for success? EVERY pair in the "Russell" collection.

When it comes to being compared to a character of said film i'd like to think of myself as... Buck Swope, now that Cat was Blac Ren Steeze personified.

A McCain and Rambo Ticket

Who do you want answering the phone at 3 a.m.?
When that question was presented to us, I thought about it.
Certainly it won't be John McCain after his comments (and his apology)a few months back.
I kept thinking of Rambo in First Blood and the scene where he flips out after catching flashbacks while a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
Last week McCain was endorsed by Sylvester Stallone and my fears were confirmed.
Can you imagine John McCain catching flashbacks at 3am when he gets that call?
Maybe he'll seek advice from Rambo.
