    Default Little Dragon

    Love their album that came out last year (Machine Dreams). They have a great sound. Sweden wins at music.

    I prefer the self-titled to the new record, but I LOVE Little Dragon's live sound. Hoping to catch them again at Coachella.

    They are billed really low so they seem likely for an early in the day act, which would be nice because fewer conflicts. But their sound is a nighttime sound. You know, they would be the perfect lead-in to Fever Ray.

    Frank, my faves off the self-titled are "Twice" and "Turn Left". Especially "Twice". *swoon*

    I am really excited about this too. I sometimes prefer that bands like this get early time slots. It creates less conflict and the crowd tends to be a bit more sophisticated...

    LOVE Little Dragon. Both albums are excellent and their live show was one of my very favorites of 2009. Yukimi has so much energy and the band plays together really well.

    They ended their Dallas show with this wild version of "Wink"

    The singer sure has some killer dance moves.

    And for the record, Machine Dreams > self-titled

    Nooo, that would conflict with a sunset Grizzly Bear set

    So this person took a lot of quality videos at their El Rey show last month:




    Oh yeah, for all the LA people, they will be playing on 1/30:

    So a lot of these live videos are around 10 minutes for one song, which is interesting. I wonder if that will be the case at a festival. In any case, I'll definitely catch any local show after Coachella.

    That dancing is the best.

    Up until yesterday, I thought this band was Lucky Dragons who opened for Thom Yorke. Needless to say, I will actually have to take a look into them.

    And damn, of course Boourns likes them. There is an Asian chick singer in the group!

    When I saw them, most of the songs were extended...Feather was at least ten minutes long. When she said they would play one more song, they went on a 15-20 minute rampage mashing a few songs together.

    and yeah, the dancing is great. Yukimi came down and danced all through the crowd during Looking Glass (around 4:00).

    for those of you who don't really like their new album as much compared to their first need to check out their live performance on kcrw
    http://www.kcrw.com/media-player/med...3little_dragon
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNEaA...eature=related - my favorite song on it.

    i like it much better than their album release.

    also, kcrw is an amazing radio station.

    YES. Along with De La Soul and possibly DEL since Hieroglyphics (maybe a late hip hop act add?) have been touring around recently.

    Little Dragon is great. I actually got into them a few months before the lineup came out so I was happily surprised when I saw them on the poster.

    They are very good... One group I'm really looking forward to... and praying they don't conflict with Whitest Boy Alive (that would be a tough call...).

    Another good station beside KCRW is the Minneapolis-based 89.3 the Current. They are similar and both member supported (no commercials).
    You can stream them for free with no extra downloads at http://www.thecurrent.org
    Their playlist the last hour just to get a small taste-
    Mumford and Sons: "Little Lion Man"
    The Big Pink: "At War With The Sun"
    Belle and Sebastian: "I'm Waking Up With Us"
    Malakai: "Snowflake"
    Gnarls Barkley: "Smiley Faces"
    Metric: "Help, I'm Alive"
    The The: "Uncertain Smile"
    Tom Waits: "Goin Out West"
    The Dead Weather: "I Cut Like a Buffalo"
    The Avett Brothers: "January Wedding"
    Aimee Mann: "Freeway"
    Rogue Wave: "Good Morning (the Future)"
    Nina Simone: "I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl"
    Moby: "One Time We Lived"
    Brother Ali: "Tightrope"
    Julian Casablancas: "11th Dimension"
    Jonsi: "Boy Lillikoi"
