Little Dragon’s first outing on Ninja Tune is a sublime slice of melodic machine soul. It’s a formula that the band has tweaked to perfection over the years, and it hits me right in the feels every time. Not much more to say, just press play :P
This release, along with some other recent singles and EPs, has me paying close attention to Ninja Tune for the first time in several years, and I couldn’t be happier about it. The label has gracefully transitioned from screwball breakbeat DJ arthouse to a global independent creative hub and umbrella for other forward thinking labels like Counter, Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder, and Actress’s Werkdiscs. Keep it coming Ninjas!
