Santigold released the SPIN Essential’d stunner Master of My Make-Believe earlier this year, but on Colbert Report, it’s host Stephen Colbert’s make-believe, and Colbert is the master. After Grizzly Bear squeezed into a lifeboat with the pundit-comedian on Tuesday night’s episode, last night Colbert commandeered Santi into a very old-looking helicopter, asking her about the differences between “gut mouth” and “face mouth” as well as whether her backup dancers were raised by wolves. The show also aired a clip of Santigold performing latest video selection “The Keepers” at last week’s StePhest Colbchella ‘012: Rockaugustfest, adding her renditions of fellow Master strokes “Go” and “Disparate Youth” as online exclusives. Watch all four videos below, and keep a tight grip on your reality.
