Little Dragon

Album: Ritual Union
Genre: electronic, trip-hop, indietronica, dream pop, neo soul

Little Dragon is an electronic music group formed in 2006 and based in Gothenburg, Sweden. The band is made up of Yukimi Nagano (vocals), Fredrick Källgren (bass), Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards) and Erik Bodin (drums). To date, they have released three studio albums: Little Dragon (2007), Machine Dreams (2009) and Ritual Union (2011).

Nagano and Bodin play live with José González. Bodin also drums with Peps Perrson, a Swedish blues/reggae artist. Swedish electronic jazz duo Koop’s albums Waltz for Koop and Koop Islands feature Yukimi Nagano’s vocals on several tracks.

The band collaborated with Gorillaz on two tracks (“Empire Ants” and “To Binge”) from their 2010 released album, Plastic Beach. Little Dragon also collaborated with Maximum Balloon (the solo project of David Andrew Sitek, producer and member of TV On The Radio), for one track entitled “If You Return”. In 2011, the band’s collaboration with SBTRKT on “Wildfire” was released as the lead single from his self-titled debut LP. – Excerpt from Last.Fm

Today’s song was discovered thanks to Consequence of Sound’s Spotify Playlist by Kevin Barnes of the band Of Montreal. The entire playlist can be found here.
