Some bands think the best thing about cross-country touring is that it's a good opportunity to discover America. But as Mike D tells it, what he and his fellow Beastie Boys most look forward to about a road trip is the chance to discover America's record stores."

When Santi White, aka Santigold, released her debut album in 2008, she earned comparisons to another forward-thinking sonic provocateur: M.I.A. Four years and a second album (last month's "Master of My Make-Believe") later, Santigold has eclipsed any similarities to ... well, anyone. Her blending of sounds - driving beats intersect with ska, reggae and punk touchstones, all delivered in a slick, danceable package - has made her brand of jittery pop wholly her own. Santigold, who performs Tuesday at Rams Head Live , spoke recently about beating trends, building a brand and her friendship with the late Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys.

The Ting Tings - the English dance-punk duo of Katie White and Jules de Martino that will play Rams Head Live on Saturday - found inspiration for its latest album, March's "Sounds from Nowheresville," from three Jewish New Yorkers rapping about Humpty Dumpty, "The Empire Strikes Back" and Patty Duke. The Beastie Boys' 1989 landmark album "Paul's Boutique" seems at first like an odd muse for the Ting Tings Its platinum-selling singles ("That's Not My Name," "Shut Up and Let Me Go")

LONDON -- "Hey, Buckingham Palace!" Michael "Mike D." Diamond says in a high, pinched New York accent as the Beastie Boys' minibus swings past the royal homestead. "Hence all the flags. And this is the Mall." Actually, Brits say "mal," not "maul," but yes. And America's premier white rappers are playing a late afternoon showcase gig for a select few hundred fans and media right beside this historic ceremonial way. The venue is the tony, though not quite snobbish, Institute for Contemporary Arts, mere yards from Queen Elizabeth's residence.

Remember when the Beastie Boys were the freshest act around?Their 1986 debut, "Licensed to Ill," was not only the first rap release to top the Billboard albums chart, but it stood as proof that rock and rap were totally compatible. "Paul's Boutique," in 1989, pioneered the wry pop culture plundering Beck has built his career around and helped kick the '70s revival into gear, while 1994's "Ill Communication" presaged rap's return to a live band groove.There are also such side projects as the Beastie-sponsored Milarepa Fund, which produced the Tibetan Freedom Concerts, and the Beastie-owned Grand Royal label, which signed Sean Lennon.

None of the guys is 40 yet, but some critics call the Beastie Boys "elder statesmen" of hip-hop, three aging rappers who have played the game by their own rules for the past 25 years. "Oh, yeah, 'elder statesmen,'" Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz says dryly. "It's wonderful. We get discounts on prune juice and Geritol. Cane and walker companies sponsor our shows now. Yeah, it's really nice." He's calling from Manhattan, his home these days. (His New York-based partners -- Mike "Mike D" Diamond, 37, and Adam "MCA" Yauch, 39 -- are unavailable.

A year hasn't even passed since Amy Winehouse garnered critical acclaim and commercial success with her American debut, Back to Black. But the troubled 23-year-old singer already has earned a reputation for showing up to concerts inebriated - if she shows up at all. Yesterday however, the British pop-soul revivalist was present and coherent at the sweltering opening day of this year's Virgin Festival, but Winehouse was also apathetic and indifferent....

Hip-hop is in him, an integral part of his musical expression, so eventually Mike Shinoda was going to do it. The Linkin Park MC and co-founder has just released his full-on rap debut, The Rising Tied. "The first albums I listened to were Run DMC and the Beastie Boys [at] the same time I was studying classical pieces," says Mike, 28, who's calling from a promotional stop in Paris. "At some point, I was rapping and making beats. I didn't get a chance to do straight-up hip-hop songs with Linkin Park.

Downloaders are missing out on the best part of the Beastie Boys' new album: the liner notes. Not only does packaging for To The 5 Boroughs include all the lyrics, they're annotated with editor's notes and footnotes that leaven what is probably the rap trio's most political album. "Sneak between the sheets so hide the matzoh. Holler back challah bread ... next. We are the crew that put the crew in Cruex," Mike D raps on "3 The Hard Way," and then the group apologizes for the turgid rhymes with a footnote that reads, "Sorry about the last few lines."
