Yesterday we received a curious press release from indie darling Santogold's record label telling us that the "L.E.S Artistes" singer had changed her name to Santigold:

"Change the graffiti on the bathroom wall, get your tattoo fixed, get your t-shirt airbrushed and change the name on your year end list -- Santogold is now Santigold. She’s not telling you why, that’s just how it is. No unpronounceable symbol, no numbers where they shouldn’t be, no random capitalization, just plain ass Santigold so remember that."

Cool with us, Santi. We don't really care if you change your name to Ron Jeremy as long as you keep making records that sound as good as your last one did.
