Make of it what you will, Santigold gives form to the dreams (and nightmares) of the America, in the medium of pop music. A life worth fighting for.
*As a side note, you will notice an advertisement at the beginning of this and many such internet videos. It seems there is nowhere we can go, save perhaps to sleep, without being advertised at. This is nothing more than a full-scale assault on our consciousness. They say, “your content will return 5-4-3-2-1.” But make no mistake the advertising IS the content. When they say, “your programming will continue,” unless you turn it off, it never stopped in the first place.
*UPDATE – Regarding being advertised at: My friend turned me on to the adblock, free software for blocking all web advertisements, including those at the beginning of YouTubery.
