I can't stop listening to this song

Santogold's "L.E.S. Artistes" is like The Hipster Handbook, but with throbbing handclaps and dripping sarcasm. Sometimes, I listen to this song without a trace of irony.

"It's true. New York City donkey-punches Nylon Taffeta Slim Fit-wearing nabes from suburbia," I sob.

If only Santi White asked me to appear in her hipper-than-thou vid. I would've danced my capri-fitted ass off.

I did enjoy it. Was reading an old Rolling Stones mag in a dr's waiting area today and caught a short interview with her. She mentioned her dad introduced her to Nina Simone and James Brown and her sister introduced her to new wavey stuff like Tom Tom Club. I certainly hear Tom Tom Club in that single. Thanks for posting it.
