Song of the day

"No Fantasy Required", by Tiga.

It would have been more accurate to call this post "Sound of the day", because what specifically nails me to the wall in this song is the "New Gold Dream" synth wash that comes from out of nowhere at the 1:55 mark, and the way it stamps a rather emphatic minor-key vibe onto what you didn't expect to be a minor-key song. We haven't had an album from Tiga, Canada's number one disco imp, for some time. It is a good one.
