I saw the Santogold/Diplo album “Top Ranking”in a store a few weeks ago and knew I had to have it.
On Saturday, it was mine and rumour has it she’ll be in Toronto tonight. I’m playing in a soccer game, so I probably won’t go but enjoy this track courtesy of Leather Canary or find more Santogold here, Diplo here.
“Arousal for Chloe: Sinead O’Connor CD, beeswax candles, my cologne, a lie. Beneath the scent of cocnut her hair smells like juniper, even willow. Chloe sleeps across from me, dreaming of photographers flashing light meters inches from her face, of running naked down a freezing beach pretending it’s summer, of sitting under a palm tree full of spiders in Borneo, of getting off an overnight flight, gliding across another red carpet, paparazzi waiting. Miramax keeps calling, a dream within the dream of six hundred interview sessions melding into nightmares involving white-sand beaches in the South Pacific, a sunset over the Mediterranean, the French Alps, Milan, Paris, Tokyo, the icy waves, the pink newspapers from foreign countries, stacks of magazines with her unblemished face airbrushed to death adn cropped close ont he covers, and it’s hard to sleep when a sentence fro a Vanity Fair profile of Chloe by Kevin Sessums refuses to leave me: “Even though we’ve never met she looks eerily familiar, as if we’ve known her forever.”
On Friday, those Curb Crawlers bitches are going to be hosting a party at Levack Block with the UK’s Scott Cooper. If their promises and multiple Facebook messages about the event are anything to go by, this is going to be the party of the century.
If it’s not, there is always the free Crystal Castles (we posted about them here) and Thunderheist show on Saturday night at the Harbourfront Center.
