April 29, 2008 - Austin360.com | Austin American-Statesman - Joe Gross

Santogold, aka Santi White, did time in the Philadelphia ska band Stiffed, but don’t hold that against her. Nobody else is: The buzz on this gal is deafening. She’s drawn comparisons to M.I.A., and while the song “Creator” seems an M.I.A. sound-alike, the generalization is inaccurate.

May 18, 2009 - Austin360.com | Austin American-Statesman - Peter Mongillo

It’s been a big year for Boston-based psych-poppers Passion Pit, who followed up last year’s well-received EP, a catchy DIY effort recorded by frontman Michael Angelakos as a Valentine’s Day gift for his girlfriend, with a strong showing at SXSW and a tour that will have the band on stage at several high-profile festivals, including Austin City Limits in October.

(no rating) June 16, 2009 - Austin360.com | Austin American-Statesman - V.M. Black

Santigold (a.k.a. Santi White) was all smiles as she transformed Stubb’s into a sweltering hour-long dance party on Monday evening. She and a super-tight new band fired off killer versions of nearly all the tracks on her 2008 self-titled debut, a few cuts from her Diplo mixtape and her recent collaborations with Jay-Z and Major Lazer.
