CD Review: Little Dragon "Nabuma Rubberband"

The trip-hop, electro-pop sound of Little Dragon returns in full force, and per usual, the Swedish outfit’s M.O. is bass. Fredrik Källgren Wallin’s Industrial Radio MIDI bass blurs the lines between key-synths and pedal-effected frequencies, both of which he aptly covers. While the record boasts a slew of head bobbing, trance-inducing ostinato lines by Wallin, perhaps the most grooving moment comes in the intro of “Klapp Klapp,” where his funky upright steals the show.
