    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    SANTIGOLD - BACK & FORTH The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    Most people know her for tunes like ‘L.E.S. Artistes’, ‘Creator’ and ‘Go’, but Santigold (Sandi White) has crammed a lot into her career. Along with being a successful solo artist, she’s been part of punk/rock band Stiffed, and worked in A&R (artist and repertoire).

    Dan trawls through her music on this week’s Back & Forth – anthems,
    remixes, and collaborations.






    It’s album number three from Julia Holter. So, has she embraced glam, and created a Rock Opera? No, certainly not; ‘Loud City Song’ continues Holter’s exploration of of the ethereal, and drawing inspiration from Joni Mitchell and the poetry of Frank O’Hara. It wouldn’t be outrageous to say that Julia Holter is one of the individual artists making music these days.
