Why in the world is there not a thread already about Little Dragon? Well I guess I don't blame everyone. I had not heard of Little Dragon before the Lineup. and didnt check them out until a couple days ago.

These guys are Incredible, and EXACTLY what I've been looking for awhile.. some Fresh Soul music. Love the singers voclas. And goddamn are they funky. I find myself slipping in and out of the lyrics. the lyrical patterns and the words itself...simply great. Really excited to see them. Um, well shit. I guees I'll pull up some youtubes. I'm just gonna post songs. Havent watched any live footage. saving it for Coach. But I did watch like 5 seconds of a live clip and it sounded good. thats all I need.

I'm thinking theres know other way to do it but to have them clsoe out the Gobi tent Friday night. Its justgotta be done.

Oh yeah youtubes..

Never heard of them up until now, but wow this shit is reeaal good.

Sooo mellow, reminds me alot of a more "live" version of Kaskade's house or sumtin. I like this, thanks for showing me.

ive said it before - ill say it again - not a fan - they were ok on record - then i saw them live and wanted to leave ASAP

Yes, sorry to echo the negative comments of daft$tar, but I saw them in the UK and they were duller than dishwater. Damn shame, as their recorded music is absolutely lovely. Perhaps they've gotten better at performing since?

i hope so, i recently dicovered them through zune of all places (they gave "blinking pigs" away for free) never seen them live but their albums are great, love her voice. i hope they translate well to a live set.

They have been posted in one of the other Little Dragon threads, but there are some great HD vids from their El Rey show last year. Looks incredible:

i just saw their performance of "feather" at the el ray on you tube, and i have to agree, it seemed kinda boring.

Dont get me wrong ill still watch them (maybe they will put on a good show at coachella), i just mean she seemed kinda bored herself, and her voice didnt sound that great. Maybe it was just the recording though, I hope so we'll see.

But of course! Did you get to ask her about Coachella and Glasto?

She said she didn't know about set-times. She was super friendly, though. Forgot to ask about Glastonbury. Sorry! :/

The songs that they did play were extended some, but not to 9-10 minutes. I took video of "Feather" and it's around 6 and a half minutes. Yukimi wore a glow in the dark Snow White dress and clearly she is not human but instead dancer.

I worked my way through the La Roux crowd in order to get a good spot for this. Glad I did as I was only a few people back from the stage. Also glad I decided to see them instead of LCD Soundsystem being that they were underwhelming the 2 times I've seen them.

Little Dragon was by far my favorite set on Friday.

mickflyy
04-19-2010, 11:22 PM
Alright they were really good live. I wasn't able to see the entire set because I wanted to see Erol Alkan, but I will definitely be seeing them again as soon as possible. I don't see any U.S dates anytime soon though.

Oh man. Empire Ants and To Binge are 2 of my faves on the album. Watching them sing To Binge was so sweet. I was melted on the floor.

Little Dragon -> Fever Ray was the best back to back of the weekend for me.

the new version of Swimming was amazing.

Little Dragon->Fever Ray...ahhh, epic combos don't always have to be on the main stage. Or on the same stage. And can have an hour of downtime between them.

AGREED!! My two favorite sets of the weekend, as well as new favorite bands. It was a tough choosing between Little Dragon and Imogen Heap who I have never seen, but I know I made the right decision.

Boourns
05-01-2010, 02:57 PM
Imogen Heap was late and only played half a set as a result, anyway.

Such a great show. the gobi was like half empty too. pretty sure because of LCD on the main stage
