Album: Little Dragon by Little Dragon

Little Dragon’s self titled album is music for lazy days in the park, tea parties, late night trains, and boozy lunches with your bezzies.
This album is part electronica, part new wave, part R&B and 60% brilliant! Before you think only 60%? DO NOT let that stop you from reading on! If you don’t particularly enjoy electro but sometimes find yourself tapping your feet to The Knife or Hot Chip, then there IS hope… Little Dragon delivers so much more texture than electro, so much more! In all honestly, the album hosts as many ‘stand-out’ tracks as ‘skip-overs’, but the ‘stand-outs’ never get boring. With emotionally taut lyrics tied in with beautiful vocals and abstract electronics, the album stands proud as not only unique but strangely familiar. We won’t bore you with individual track write-ups, but we will recommend ‘Ritual Union’, it is pure genius!

These four school chums from Gothenburg should be proud of them selves, with sparse, quirky, gender-bending sounds, and singer Yukimi Nagano’s eerie and heartful tones, this album deserves credit where it’s due.
