Gothenburg’s Little Dragon has steadily grown from being the biggest underground secret to international acclaim after three successful albums and touring all over the world. Their energetic live set and unique recording process has made fans out of some of the biggest names in music including Pharrell Williams, Questlove, and OutKast. Gaining popularity among such tastemakers led to collaborations with artists like Big Boi, The Gorillaz, and SBTRKT. The release of Little Dragon’s fourth album, Nabuma Rubberband, is the culminating moment in their career after years of building a grassroots fanbase.
Musically inspired by the more experimental pockets of Prince’s back catalogue, club culture and the vintage Janet Jackson slow jams Yukimi used to listen to wandering around Gothenburg during the unrelenting winter, Nabuma Rubberband has a different feel to previous Little Dragon albums. “When you put some of Janet’s really slow stuff on you feel like you’re floating,” Yukimi explains. “That feeling really influenced me and maybe that’s why there are quite a lot of slow jams on the record. In the past we’ve been a bit self-conscious about making slow jams after ‘Twice’. Then we wanted to make dance music which we did with Machine Dreams and then Ritual Union still had a dance vibe, but with this album it wasn’t about that. The intention was about whatever we felt strongly about.”
Yukimi Nagano, Erik Boden, Fred Wallin and Håkan Wirenstrand make up Little Dragon, the zeitgeist band that blend strands of R&B, electronic and indie into beautifully and meaningfully crafted songs. Over the course of three critically-lauded albums, Little Dragon have established themselves as a band keen to never rest on their laurels – constantly prodding and playing with the boundaries of their sound. Nabuma Rubberband promises to be their most dynamic album yet and is due on 5/13/14 via Loma Vista Recordings and 5/12/14 on Because Music.
Lawrence Rothman- a musician from the Midwest who lived a nomadic life before settling in Los Angeles to concentrate on a musical project inspired by the writings of Charles Bukowski and a fascination with R&B, film scores and house music.
On his entrancing debut 7" single "Montauk Fling", Lawrence sings in a haunting baritone as rich and resonating as that of Leonard Cohen over a minimalist 808 beat about the secret lives that inhabit one's psyche.
"31-year-old Los Angeleno Lawrence Rothman makes twisted R&B, drenched in an unsettling baritone, inspired by everything from the writings of Charles Bukowski to Cindy Sherman photographs to house music. He's also the first signing to music video director and artist Floria Sigismondi's record label, Mamaroma. Given he has directed oddly unsettling videos for the likes of David Bowie, the White Stripes and Marilyn Manson, it's hardly surprising Sigismondi was drawn to Rothman's music. In fact, she liked his first single Montauk Fling so much she directed its creepy video, which features a troupe of glamorous women doing exercises at Chateau Marmont in LA." --Guardian UK
