Little Dragon - Ritual Union

If you've been following Sleepy Son for over a year, you'd come to the realisation that I have a fanboy crush on Yukimi Nagano, swedish siren for Little Dragon. Playing trip-hop and new jazz amongst giants like Gorillaz (Empire Ants), Koop (Come to Me), SBTKRT (Wildfire), she definitely holds her own. Lets break aside from my fixation with Miss Nagano. Looking at Little Dragon as a whole, tight knit group of four, it is evident they have formed a niche sound. The drums, for one is infectious in a sense that it dominates and sets a platform where the synths seeps through. There's just enough room for Yuki's vocals to play around, changing form to suit the mood.
