Popped Tape: Little Dragon

While I’m on my music tip, it was recently brought to my attention that some people still have not had the immense aural pleasure of listening to Swedish band Little Dragon. I would be remiss to not share one of the best things happening in music right now. Listen to one of my favorite tracks, “Forever”, here.

Constant Surprises


In love yet?

    long time reader (love your site), first time commenter.

    just had to co-sign on the awesomeness of little dragon in general, and the dopeness of “forever” in particular. saw them live the other week–they killed it. can’t wait for their new album to drop in a couple of weeks.

    thanks for posting this.

      well thank youu i feel speshal. did you see ld at summer stage? i heard they were there. i feel like good music is making a comeback and little dragon is def at the forefront. out of curiosity, what else do you have in rotation right now?

    saw them in chicago. agreed: plenty of good music out there–esp. in sweden.

    for a while there i couldn’t stop listening to mjj mixtapes, but now i’m back to listening to anything from the foreign exchange’s constellation; i’m waiting on nicolay’s new joint to drop. also been playing brittany bosco, hi-res, some hawthorne headhunters, and a couple of purple rain inspired mixtapes. need to listen to that new georga anne.

    again, thanks for shining light on ld.

      speaking of sweden, have u heard of kissey asplund? shes kinda doope..

      and on the foreign exchange tip, big pooh has that new grown folks dwele eqsue jam
      i personally dont like pooh as much as phonte, and since you said foreign exchange and not lb, you might feel the same way lol but figured i’d throw it out there anyway. i need to check out some of those other people you mentioned. just got put onto georgina anne actually..

        i am kissey fan. got a chance to see her play here (chi) last summer. she was so energetic and quirky. do you know the dyno track “autumn love” feat. kissey? if you like instrumentals, you might dig it.

        will check out this big pooh track. i like lb, but am a religious follower of the fe. and i want phonte to be my homeboy.

    Haven’t been here to read up on your blogs for quite a while, but I love that you posted this! I was introduced to Little Dragon a good while ago and fell completely in love.
    Turn Left, and Twice, especially were heavy in rotation on my mp3 while in the darkroom. good, engaging, meditative music.
    Thank you for this!
