On her SPIN Essential'd new LP Master of My Make-Believe, Santigold "turns friction into fire" with "flippantly skewed pop anthems doubling as obviously personal documents of [her] unwillingness to let anyone get over on her." With new song "Girls," which happens to be written for the forthcoming soundtrack of the polarizing HBO show Girls, Santi White takes that creative blaze and channels it into a pair of lithely furious rap verses in which she reps hard for the fairer sex. Things kick off with a stack of looped vocals, then quickly get trappy with cut-up beatwork and a noisy drum kit. Girls — Volume 1: Music From The HBO Original Series is due January 8 via HBO/Fueled By Ramen, and it also features new ones from fun. ("Sight of the Sun"), Tegan & Sara ("Fool to Cry") and Grouplove ("Everyone's Gonna Get High"), not to mention previously released material from Robyn, Fleet Foxes, Belle & Sebastian, and more. Dig in, and be sure to revisit Caryn Ganz's iPad cover story on "Santigold's Killah Instinct." Our favorite artiste plays SPIN's "Year in Music 2012 Party" tonight with Grizzly Bear in New York City.
