Little Dragon – Machine Dreams

Tue 4 Aug 09 - by creaminal - 6 Comments

The much-anticipated second album, Machine Dreams from the lovely swedish soul-pop band Little Dragon is coming out on Peacefrog Records this month.

The new LP is a move forward to more electro-robotic sound but without loosing their intimate soulfulness. Yukimi Nagano is as magical as ever and now the edgy, uptempo beats are providing great context to her hypnotic voice. Each new track can be taken as a gem, though Feather (this will be the first official single), Looking Glass or Thunder Love purely radiate out of the whole. Fortune and Blinking Pigs have already been released on a single earlier this year. The album cover is designed by the Japenese artist Hideyuki Katsumata who also made the animation for LD’s nice Fortune video last year.


Tracklist: 1. A New 2. Looking Glass 3. My Step 4. Feather 5. Thunder Love 6. Never Never 7. Runabout 8. Swimming 9. Blingking Pigs 10. Come Home 11. Fortune (free official dl)

Here is a tasty live video of the new song Never Never from their worldwide album tour. (thanks to pathanapong)

Machine Dreams is out 31, August on Peacefrog Records. Buy on sight!

    Great track, but I now will say LD would have done much better promoting themselves at or something.

    The Hugo Boss site, with its intrusive marketing data requirements, atrocious browser hijacking, slow flash monolith design, and the download failed and when I retried it denied me because I “already had it” with no discernable way to contact them and tell them they are ridiculous.

    I will definitely be picking up the new LD album. I will likely never buy another item from Hugo Boss again.

    can’t say i liked their first album, they were much better performing it live. recently, i saw their new show and that was even better. so reversely i guess the new album should be better as well! 🙂

    Contrary to idleberg I very much enjoyed the first album.
    Yukimi cant go wrong whatever she does 😉

    Been looking forward to this one for a good while, I believe it went under the working title “Berlinmaster” for a while.
