Love their album that came out last year (Machine Dreams). They have a great sound. Sweden wins at music.
excited about them playing; but im sure there will be plenty of conflicts
je suis un extraterrestre
I prefer the self-titled to the new record, but I LOVE Little Dragon's live sound. Hoping to catch them again at Coachella.
Frank, my faves off the self-titled are "Twice" and "Turn Left". Especially "Twice". *swoon*
Album is called "Machine Dreams," Boourns.
Can't wait to see them on Friday!
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"
I'm excited about this too. They should get a sunset spot. In Gobi, perhaps?
I look forward to see them
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:
i was at the el rey show and HATED this band live - the lead singers dancing is so distracting - i had to leave half way thru - not a good time...
SF people, you can catch them before Coachella at the Independent on 4/13 or 4/14. Tickets on sale tomorrow. I'm very excited about this show, in case there's a conflict.
5/25-5/27: MOVEMENT DETROIT
6/6: The Field @ The Independent
6/26: Colin Stetson @ The Chapel
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!
For your health
Thanks for the SF show info!1 I am really feeling Little Dragon, I love their sound and the lead singers voice, just got my friends into them, another one of my must sees/amazing finds for Coachella 2010!! I cant wait!!
I am writing this to say, in a gentile way, Thank you, I will live my life, oh, for whether you stay or stray"
Coachella lifer!! 04, 06, 07, 08, 09 and 10!!
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.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.
I am completely hooked on this song. I love finding amazing tunes when I research unfamiliar artists! Thanks Coachella lineup!
YES. Along with De La Soul and possibly DEL since Hieroglyphics (maybe a late hip hop act add?) have been touring around recently.

Loving this band!
It is because I said it was
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.
Can't wait to see them play this song:
I am neither foxy, nor a lady.
