Santigold has finished wrapping up her Spring 2019 tour in celebration of the release of her self-titled debut album. Her brief tour took her across the United States with various dates spread across the east and west coast for ten tour stops total. Although Santigold has been a prominent artist for a decade now, she considers her self-titled debut as a work that she looks back on positively.
“I really like it(Santigold)! And the thing is that I don’t feel like that about anything. I’m the type of person who doesn’t have any tattoos, because I know that I will not like them later,” Santigold explained in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.”Even when I listen to [my previous band] Stiffed I feel embarrassed. But I’m really proud of it, I can still listen to it and enjoy it… I mean not often, but like every four years.”
Ever since its debut at FYF in Los Angeles back in 2017, Flying Lotus has taken his new 3D tour experience across the country, from The Hollywood Bowl to the Lightning In A Bottle fest. His last album Flamagra, hosts a plethora of new features from Little Dragon to legendary filmmaker David Lynch.
Phantogram released their newest single “Into Happiness,” earlier this month, which was their first original song released in three years.
