Little Dragon Little Dragon on LP
2007 debut album from Swedish outfit Little Dragon featuring radiant vocalist Yukimi Nagano and her close high school friends Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrick Källgren (bass) and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards). Little Dragon stepped into the spotlight with the release of their first double A-side single on Peacefrog (home to Jos‚ Gonzalez and Findlay Brown), "Twice/Test," a former Rough Trade `Single of the Week'. The album is marvelously bookended by the drifting percussion and electronic dynamics of "Scribbled Paper," showcasing another wonderful vocal performance. Little Dragon take tired musical traces and styles, give them a shot in the arm to leave us with something fresh and positive. It is a debut full of subtle touches, capturing fleeting emotional moments, twinned with gnawingly memorable pop flourishes and hooks.
