Album Review

For years now, the world of music has been too global and interconnected for one to truly be surprised at an outfit such as Little Dragon, but it's no less a wonder that a sound as American as soul and R&B can infuse the music this pervasively of a group of high school buddies from Sweden. Little Dragon is a dynamic self-titled debut that is yet another credible and enchanting Euro-approximation of soul and rhythm & blues. Vocalist Yukimi Nagano displays all the subtle inflections and conspicuous acrobatics that have identified the R&B genre for years, but specifically the more recent paradigms of the Chaka Khans and MJBs, noted easily on the album's highlight "Constant Surprises." Meanwhile, "Wink" is a sexy, synth-heavy club banger that might conjure some of the more poppish acts (Rihanna). But the album — and group — don't stop there, thankfully. They give you everything from quaint piano ballads ("Twice") to jazz-drenched pieces, like "After the Rain" where keyboardist Håkan Wirenstrand makes like Herbie Hancock with his sparse and dissonant chording. "Forever" is an ambient number meant for dark lounges with a lot of pheromone activity. It's a genuine album bolstered by the group's collective artistry. It proves, once again, that geography has very little to do with authenticity.

Sexy as Silk

Now I have had the pleasure of listening to Yukimi Nagano's voice before on Hird's Album and I fell in love. And now the power of her potential seems to reach deeper and Little Dragon emerges. The arrangements here are like some beautiful asymmetrical ensemble from a designer that appreciates art and beauty. Key elements are: Twice, No Love, Forever, Test, Constant Surprises....personal fave, Forever.... Little Dragon is a surprisingly and uniquely sensual album....enter the fantasy and beauty of Yukimi's soulful and sexy voice.

Very Tight Album!!!!!!!

This album is catergorized as Electronic but I would describe it as Eclectic Soul. Ever since I heard "Forever" on college radio I've been anxious for the album. Yukimi's vocals are hypnotically fresh. "Twice" sounds like the soundtrack to a great drama. You can tell that real musicians are the backbone of this album which at times is very R&Bish. "No Love" takes you back to the late 90s with a downtempo Hip Hop and Jazz feel. I can't get enough of Yukimi's vocals. She's Missy Elliot meets Billy Holiday. I'm very impressed with this album!!!

Crazy soul-y Swedes

Really cool vibey music. Less electronic than soul. Reminds me of a cross between Erykah Badu and Bjork!
