First Impressions: Move Your Shoulders To Little Dragon's 'Stå Upp'

Thursday, March 24, 2011

Even though Little Dragon has been globetrotting stages and popping up at festivals like Austin's SXSW, I've been wanting, waiting and anticipating for the Swedish act to get in the studio to follow-up the wonderful Machine Dreams. Patience is a truthfully virtue as the first entry from Ritual Union, the band's upcoming third album, comes in the form of "Stå Upp"---and it's a funky space reincarnation for sure. Filled with all the good stuff that Little Dragon is made of, from dreamy synths, urgent drumming, funky basslines, and Yukimi's coo-like vocal, this is a song to really adore and "move your shoulders" too. Just got it today, and have basically disturbed the neighbors with constant and decibel high play. From the debut of "Little Man" to this, Ritual Union is shaping up to be an album that will not disappoint.

Oh, and after you experience "Stå Upp" be get another dose of Little Dragon today by checking after the cut for the band's SXSW performance of "Little Man" as well as those PS22 Chorus kiddos from Staten Island taking a crack at the glorious "Twice". You gotta see it to believe it.
