This week Santi White, a.k.a. eclectic Brooklyn-based singer and songwriter Santigold, returns with her first full-length album in four years: Master of My Make-Believe. The album is packed with friends, including TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek (her song “Disparate Youth” is a wink to TV on the Radio’s first record, Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes), Q-Tip, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O and Nick Zinner, who cowrote four songs, including the previously released “Go!” Are you excited for the singer’s return? Have you heard the new record? Rolling Stone wants to hear what you think.
Today marks the launch of the John Peel Archive, a partnership between the John Peel Centre for Creative Arts and U.K. digital platform the Space to digitize the late DJ’s 26,000-strong collection of LPs in weekly 100-album installments. For 40-plus years, Peel was the premier arbiter of taste over a wide-ranging constellation of bands and artists in the U.K. and beyond through his prolific listening habits, his radio shows and the encyclopedic Peel Sessions.
We want to hear which selections you’re listening to, what you think of the archive and your favorite John Peel session/moment/quote – let us know with #RSFans how you’re remembering Peel and the music he supported (you can access the archive here).
Meanwhile, Coldplay’s international tour behind Mylo Xyloto, which will keep the band busy through September, kicks off its second leg today at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. If you plan on going, we want to hear how Chris Martin and Co. are doing up there. Let us know with #RSFans, and we’ll use your tweets and Instagrams to tell the story.
