Swedish trip hop band Little Dragon is back with a new album called Nabuma Rubberband, and they've released the first single, called "Klapp Klapp." It's a good one. It's like they haven't skipped a beat since their 2011 album Ritual Union.
Following the ill vibes from Ritual Union (one of my all-time favorites), "Klapp Klapp" just keeps getting better and better after each and every listen. With layers of experimental beats, meandering synths, and Yukimi Nagano's echoing vocals, "Klapp Klapp" is the perfect introduction to the new album.
Little Dragon is set to make some appearances in North America this spring, which includes stops at SXSW, Coachella, and a few others. Nabuma Rubberband is due out May 13, 2014 via Loma Vista Records. For more info, check out the band's Facebook page here.
