Video: Little Dragon at Göta Källare

This was brought to my attention by a visitor of this here site, Esa. Thank you very much for the link, by the by. As I can’t figure out how to embed this, you’ll have to click the image to go to a page where indeed you can stream the video. Source. “Yet another lovely Saturday night on the Stockholm club scene – a sold out Little Dragon show. We did our very first live stream from the venue, despite some initial bandwidth issues we managed to get the party out to a few hundred listeners around the world. The sound is amazing and the voice of Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano meets the band’s beats and orchestration perfectly.”
