Little Dragon

I wish I had known about this band sooner! I only noticed them recently when I saw that they were going to be playing with VV Brown at Johnny Brenda's in Philly this month. I will be out of town but everyone else should GO TO THIS SHOW!

I'm a fan of VV so I was curious to hear what the band touring with her sounded like. I picked up a copy of their newest album Machine Dreams. These songs really have a way of getting under your skin. They creep in without you even noticing them and I've had this album heavy in my rotation recently.

The songs aren't terribly hooky at first listen but once you get to know them the melody and the rhythm seem to separate a bit and you can really focus on Yukimi Nagano's vocals, which are brilliant.
