Editors' pick

Little Dragon


Editorial Review

The lands of Scandinavia continually crank out quirky, innovative new acts that are surprisingly steeped in soul, if that surprise is based on how cold it is up there. Little Dragon emerged from a fertile Swedish scene and combined post-Dilla electro soul and nu jazz with some indie rock into an album of funky dance floor fillers, haunting ballads and everything in between. The new single "Blinking Pigs" seems to foretell some electro pop touches on the upcoming sophomore release, but it's always hard to predict this band's sound.
