Little Dragon: Nabuma Rubberband  

littledragon

 

Swedish quintet Little Dragon’s fourth album is a curious listen.

The sparse trip-hop of opener Mirror suggest it’s going to be an intense-a-thon, but then the mood  changes swiftly with  Klapp Klapp’s bubbling electronic house is and the title track’s laid back funky groove. The band even try their arm – successfully too, mind – at banging ’88-style vocal house with Only One.

Not the most accessible of records and unlikely to break them nationally, but well worth persevering with.

Like this? Try these: Massive Attack, Mezzanine; AlunaGeorge, Body Music; Gorillaz, Demon Days
