Order a signed ‘Ritual Union’ LP at Recordstore.co.uk now!

Brought to my attention by the ever brilliant Lynn Yang.

The first 50 customers to order ‘Ritual Union’ at Recordstore.co.uk will have their copy signed by Little Dragon*

“Ritual Union is an effortless exercise in economics. Nothing is wasted nor added needlessly for effect, and it’s an album that revels in clean, crisp production.” – BBC Music

“The raw materials of excellence are all in place: winning melodies, dancefloor nous and the undeniable appeal of a half-Japanese, half-Swedish-American singer who sings like a fallen angel and dresses like a fashion leader…teamed with exquisite production skills”. – The Guardian

“Though consistently ground-breaking and lyrically challenging, Ritual Union never feels like hard work. Sultry, soulful and eccentric, Nagano shines brightly, particularly amid the languidly sexy disco of Crystalfilm. She is Sade, Björk, Marvin Gaye and Santigold, all rolled into one extraordinary package. This spellbinding collection of digital exotica deserves to make her a star.” – The Telegraph

*Signed copies are strictly limited and will be sent out on a first come, first served basis. One signed copy per household. Once all signed copies have been sold the offer will be taken down and replaced with an unsigned version of the album. Signed copies are allocated upon the order processing, not when the order is placed. Source.
