little dragon

Little Dragon’s songs are not what comes to mind when you think of Swedish electronic music—the Gothenburg quartet’s bass and percussion sound more like smooth jazz at times than say, The Knife, but record scratches and samples remind us we are dealing with some modern electronic masters, soaked in low-key cool. (They have collaborated with fellow Swedes and electro-jazz duo Koop, after all).

These high school friends turned electro-band are touring North America this month before heading back to Europe in early December. Catch them in NYC at Le Poisson Rouge tomorrow night, Saturday November 21, 2009.
