Swedish electronic band Little Dragon’s self-titled album was a breathtaking affair, simultaneously upbeat and experimental. Still very much an insider secret, the quartet’s follow up Machine Dreams, continues the ascending trajectory and light airy beats. Lead vocalist Yukimi Nagano’s haunting vocal matches the dreamy music doodles that Machine Dreams crafts and the occasional jazzy swing and trip hop sensibilities have found fans in soul and hip hop lovers too. From the chirpy ‘Runabout’ and ‘Swimming’ to the chilled ‘Thunder Love’, this is one easy going album that’s hard not to like.
