Little Dragon in Concert
04 Mar 2010
Little Dragon + support from Jono Mccleery & DJ John Hendicott
22-23, Highbury Corner, N5 1RD
OneTaste is excited to be hosting another showcase for Little Dragon in London. This one will be extra special as it is in the newly refurbished Garage in Highbury and Islington, kitted out with one of the phattttttest sound systems! BASS! And with the tunes of our resident DJ John Hendicott and support from the awesome Jono McCleery, who will be playing tracks from his new, yet to be released, electronic album, we're in for a proper treat!
Little Dragon are a Swedish band of former high school buddies beating off the Gothenburg blues with condensation-forming tunes. Newest album 'Machine Dreams' offers more of their self-titled debut’s aural dialectic, which pits Yukimi Nagano frothing delivery with a Fever Ray-type eerie remove. What we have, then, are pop songs of less-is-more sensibility. Yet, despite the into-the-night sparseness of 'Machine Dreams', Little Dragon sound like they’re playing in your attic because of the near absence of fuzz and reverb and other studio tricks. 'Little Dragon', the band’s 2007 debut, was a Swedish iteration of American R&B and soul rendered by the synth machine, with some introspection shaved off Joy
