Little Dragon, how I love thee! Let me count the ways…

Little Dragon is a band that has never let me down in all their years of existence. This band slays in every way, their songs will make you dance, pull at your heartstrings, empower you, and lead you on a rollercoaster of emotions sweetened with nostalgia. Their new single “Celebrate” will have you dancing around the room with no abandon… and Jesu Christe that guitar solo is giving me life!

 

Their new album Season High is out tomorrow digitally via Loma Vista Records! The album will be available to purchase on LP and CD in stores May 5th. This is the first album since their brilliant 2014 release Nabuma Rubberband. Little Dragon produced their new album with James Ford mixing in their hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden. You can get your copy of the album via iTunesAmazon, and of course Little Dragon’s website here tomorrow!

New Music Friday: Lorde’s infectious new single “Green Light”

3 Mar
screen-shot-2017-03-03-at-3-45-14-pm

Lorde releases our new JAM “Green Light” produced by Jack Antonoff, off her upcoming album Melodrama! Try not to dance to this for three hours in a row…

Good LORDE. When is the last time you got chills from a pop song? For me it was when I first heard the new Lorde single “Green Light” yesterday. I subsequently watched the music video on repeat for the rest of the day until finally buying the single to just accept putting the song on repeat was the way to go. In the words of my good friend Scott, “Praise the LORDE AND MELODRAMA. BLEST”. For us, this new Lorde single is our 2017 Robyn, “Dancing On My Own” and a no-shame dance-a-thon happens no matter where we are when this song comes on.

Scott of course was referring to the name of the highly anticipated new Lorde album, Melodrama. “Green Light” is the first single we are hearing from this new Lorde masterpiece. “Green Light” is the epic, anthemic pop song of the year you can’t help but move to and get moved by. The single is produced by musical genius Jack Antonoff (Bleachers, Steel Train, FUN.) and he makes brief appearance in the video playing the piano. The duo met up in October 2015 and proceeded to recorded the album together over 10 months, mostly in Antonoff’s home studio and portions in NYC’s Jimi Hendrix-founded  Electric Lady Studios. If this first single is any insight, this new album is going to be a massive, moving, story-telling, body-moving soundtrack of the year.

You can buy Lorde’s new single “Green Light” here, and just try to match how many times I’ve watched the video below:

 

 

Lorde will be touring the festival circuit this year starting with Coachella in April! For tickets and more tour information, click here.
