ALBUM: Little Dragon - Ritual Union

Sweden's Little Dragon is a minimalistic band blessed with a unique style and alluring sound. Their R&B-infused indie-electronica music is so simple yet individualistically complex. Many people were first introduced to Little Dragon when they were featured in 2 songs from The Gorillaz album, Plastic Beach. The track below is called Empire Ants and features the voice of Little Dragon, Yukimi Nagano.

On their third studio album, Ritual Union, they deliver a mixture of slow-tempo songs like "Little Man" along with their sexy, futuristic sound in songs like "Shuffle A Dream". While this album showcases their style and musical abilities it also seems as though a few tracks are only one extra chorus, rhythmic or chord change away from being masterpieces. Nevertheless, I have still had their album on repeat for the past month and it is definitely worthy of your attention.
