Audio Vision: Little Dragon and Big Boi Tell It Like It Is
Friday, August 10, 2012
Just a hop skip and couple of counties away from me, Little Dragon performed at the Millennium Entertainment Complex in Austin, Texas, and decided that doing the unexpected is just a lot more fun. Proving the more is the merrier, they brought Big Boi out onto the stage to stir up a little funk gumbo and premiere a new collaboration.
Geared to be on Big Boi's upcoming, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors album, feast your eyes and ears on "Mama Told Me" a jubilant jam that feels like it breakdanced its way out of the 80's thanks to the squishy synths that toot their way through Yukimi Nagano's coos and Boi's slicing rhymes. Knowing Big Boi's track record for the eclectic, this collaboration with one of the funkiest exports from Sweden comes as no surprise and is nothing short of a good time. Gold medals for all.
