Today Santigold premiered the new video for her anthemic track “The Keepers” from her album Master of My Make-Believe (Downtown/Atlantic). In the video, Santigold is a member of the idyllic 1950s American family sitting down to dinner and smiling as the world falls apart around them and the present reality of the United States comes rushing in. The video was directed by Nabil and features cameos by GZA, Kick Kennedy, and Trevor Andrew. Santigold just wrapped up her Spring US tour in support of Master of My Make-Believe. She will be appearing at festivals internationally throughout the summer including Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds. Armed with her hybrid anthems, misfit band, and unstoppable dancers, the SG1s, her singular live shows are always monumental.
Noisey.com is the music channel from the makers of VICE. So you know its going to be good. And fun. The shows are about anything and everything concerning music—the best live jams, geeky record stores clerks, smarmy critics, boob-flashing fans, destroyed hotel rooms, and roadies. Never underestimate the roadies. The Noisey Youtube channel made its debut in February with M.I.A.’s “Bad Girls,” and VICE-produced A$AP Rocky video, “Wassup.” Since then the channel has racked up loads of online content with everyone from David Lynch to Odd Future. On YouTube, Noisey offers music fans the most extensive slate of original online music programming to date, covering not only the artists that matter most, but the trends and opinions that make up today’s music culture.
