It seems like Sweden has been producing some pretty wonderful musicians lately, no? One of my favorites is Little Dragon, led by Swedish/Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano. They appeared on two tracks from the Gorillaz's Plastic Beach album a few years ago and have also collaborated with TV on the Radio, so you might recognize their sound.
Their debut album, Little Dragon, came out in 2007 and instantly became a cult classic. But it's their most recent album, Ritual Union that really gets my toes tapping and my hips shaking. Usually R&B and futuristic tunes aren't my thing, but somehow they blend the two genres beautifully. Have a listen below!
