El próximo 21 de abril se llevará a cabo el Indie-O fest 2010, donde se presentarán Deerhunter, Bam Bam y Little Dragon como headliners. De estos, interesa hablar sobre Little Dragon, banda sueca que amplía el abanico nórdico de música fina y propositiva. Formada por cuatro viejos amigos de secundaria con Erik Bodin como compositor principal, Little Dragon toma su nombre del temperamento explosivo de su diminuta vocalista, Yukimi Nagano Sus primeras grabaciones llegaron a la legendaria Rough Trade, quien los impulsó para grabar con PeaceFrog Recors un primer album homónimo, de sonidos ambientales y melancólicos.

La recomendación de esta semana se la debemos a Sol , una de nuestras compañeras de Monkeyzen , quien es gran fan de este grupo originario de Gotemburgo, Suecia, el cual lleva por nombre Little Dragon . Con influencias de gente como Morcheeba, Everything But the Girl y Saint Etienne, esta banda mezcla la electrónica, el trip hop, el soul y el pop para conformar un sonido minimalista, obscuro por momentos, sensual y muy sofisticado que tiene su fuerza en la bellísima voz de Yukimi Nagano, quien por cierto ha colaborado con gente [...]
Last year, whilst looking for some extra tunes for a Best of Erykah Badu mix, I came across Little Dragon's self-titled debut album. The author of the blog post claimed that the band's lead singer Yukimi Nagano sounded very similiar to Ms. Badu... my interest piqued. I, however, did not come to the same conclusion, but quickly realized I had stumbled upon an extremely fresh album. Little Dragon hails from Gothenburg, Sweden and is an anchor for an ever-increasing "blue-eyed soul" Swedish music scene. The album has [...]

Sweden's Little Dragon is cruisin' through California for a 3 night tour beginning at the Elbo Room tonight! This seemingly synthpop group is filled with notably arranged electronic beats, jazzy percussions, and tons of experiments with hints of jazz, r&B, soul, and good pop. You might recognize Yukimi Nagano's beautiful soft voice as she has collaborated and featured with Koop and Jose Gonzalez. They currently have a self-titled album out that dropped at the edge of last summer via UK's Peace Frog Records . Twice Constant [...]
Wow, just when you thought that you've learned everything about Sweden and its sunshiney pop takeover they just slightly pinch your cheek and give you something new to smile about. Little Dragon headed by vocalist Yukimi Nagano puts a halt to all of the pop madness and asks you to close your eyes [...]
another awesome swedish band...
When compiling my best of list for this year, I realized, after the fact, that I left off a few albums that I listened to a bunch earlier in the year. The most glaring omission was the self-titled effort by Little Dragon . I have since began listening to this cd non-stop and have found even more appreciation for this debut. Little Dragon hail from Gothenburg, Sweden, home of José González, Jens Lekman, and a music scene that is slowly becoming one of the best in the world. Featuring the beautiful [...]
Tiac has a new single out, both songs featured on the single are layered synth and guitar pop bordering on shoegaze. Guitar on "Catalog of Failures" has that highly processed sound that Johnny Marr loves so much. The new 4 track single cdr/123 is available on Hybris . Catalog of Failures Better Days Here's what I really wanted to share with you today; let's call it "Swedish Indie Pop YouTube Roundup": Detektivbyran "Hemvagen" [...]
