Covers: Santigold/Santogold does Adele's "Hometown Glory"

Told ya I'd accomplish five posts this week. I'm gonna get better at this, I swear.

Here's the thing about this version. You have to completely forget about the existence of the original, and only then can you appreciate how quietly, quirkily beautiful this cover is. She took the simplest drum/bass arrangement manageable and truly, genuinely made this song her own. Only recommended for Santogold fans; Adele fans who could give a shit about Sant(i/o)gold will get absolutely nothing out of this.

I don't care what the lawsuit says, she'll always be SantOgold to me.
