Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Feather”

Rather be a bandit than a lover
Rather be a man with the other
To run the mountain down, run it down

Rather be a whisper in heaven
Than a daughter locked in your prison
So run the mountain down, run it down

You are airborne
You’ve got silver rays
Will it ever float?
Will it ever soar along?

Grip the crown like a winner
Pretending like a beginner
So run the mountain down, run it down

You are airborne
You got silver rays
Will it ever float?
Will it ever soar along?

All for the feather
Did it all for your feathered hand
Will it ever float?
Will it ever soar along?

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Blinking Pigs”

Phantom legs and blinking pigs
Haunting me
My long lost love
And the memories of
You

These nights are haunting me
I don’t want to run, I don’t want to leave
Now that your standing closer
I don’t want to run, don’t want to leave

Was a distant moan
And a smell of home
Haunting me
From the clouds above
Oh, the memory of
You

Though these nights are haunting me
I don’t want to run I don’t want to leave
Now that you’re standing closer
I don’t want to run I don’t want to leave

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Tendencies”, a bonus track from Machine Dreams

Here is my interpretation of the song, “Tendencies”. It can be purchased as a bonus track from Machine Dreams LP on iTunes, I believe.

“Tendencies”
Words written by Yukimi Nagano

My heart thrown fast
I held my breath, it was so close
The devil smelled so sweet
Took a hold of me with a cold grasp
He said I had …

Tendencies troublin’
I beg him, please don’t double it
Tenencies tickle me, devilish the way he …

Options at my door
Kindly ask for more
It was stone men
Like a simple trick
And I’m full of them
So I’m fighting
I’m fighting all of my …

Tendencies troublin’
I beg him, please don’t double it
Tenencies tickle me, devilish the way he …

It’s been going slightly too far
If I mean well it’s probably cause you are
To my heart a dream
Too many glasses of rum
I try to break away from these …

Tendencies troublin’
I beg him, please don’t double it
Tenencies tickle me, devilish the way he …

Video: Little Dragon perform “Feather” at North Avenue Studios

At one time I posted two surreal performances of “Constant Surprises” and “After The Rain”, entirely forgetting to add “Feather” to the fold. Again, these were produced by North Avenue Studios, and brought to life by Parafora Presents and thedropp.com. Fascinating performances.

Little Dragon’s “A New” Tropics remix audio and video

Download.mp3

The plethora of available remixes featuring this band is incredible. This one in particular is a real gem and was re-highlighted on Twitter recently. It’s a Clay Moon remix and features footage from Marfa, Texas and New Orleans as Little Dragon toured the United States in March, 2010. Video edited by Zucchini Oregano.

Swedish electro-pop outfit Little Dragon have been getting the remix treatment as of late. First, the dreamy second half of “Empire Ants”, their contribution to Gorillaz’s BNM’d Plastic Beach, was turned into an all-out disco jam; now, “A New”, the opening track from their sophomore effort Machine Dreams, has been reworked by UK dream-beat producer Clay Moon, who works under the moniker Tropics. Moon’s remix of “A New” adds tumbling drums and brings the original’s winding synth line to the forefront. The band made an accompanying video comprised of passing landscapes. – Pitchfork
