Little Dragon

Hot, packed and dancing on Friday, New York's Terminal 5 was a scene rarely seen, in which nearly everyone in attendance was engaged and enthusiastic, their pretensions left at the curb. With Fredrik Källgren Wallin and Håkan Wirenstrand making melodies on either side of the stage and Erik Bodin hemmed in behind the raised drum kit, the job of crowd engagement rested squarely with Yukimi Nagano, and she carried its weight effortlessly. Barefoot and at ease onstage, flitting between impassioned and lackadaisical, Nagano is less charismatic than instructional, a how-to on letting go, or just never needing to, like a Sesame Street moral come to life. Her face has a sleepy, calming contour that's easily stared-at, and her dancing is carefree and natural, punctuated by timed punches to an immaculately choreographed and deceptively gigantic light show. Nagano's voice has a full, wavy heft that's remarkable to witness, strained at times and mathematically precise when required.- [Rolling Stone]
Little Dragon headlined Terminal 5 on Friday (10/14), joined by Javelin, Donn T and a DJ set by Brooklyn Bowl regular Questlove (he plays this Thursday!). Pictures from the big show are in this post.

Little Dragon's appearance was part of a larger stretch of US dates that extends until the end of October, and included a DJ set the following night (10/15) at Yotel with Free Magic and Faso. Many of Lil Dragon's upcoming dates are with Tycho who played his own NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg over the weekend.

Sucks that I missed this. The 1, 2, 3 punch of "Shuffle A Dream", "Please Turn", and "Crystalfilm" would've been great to see live.
