It was a very short showcase of just three tracks, two from the forthcoming Ritual Union LP. The stream itself was terrible, even on a quick connection, so while I was recording the audio I also edited out the gaps of silence to given it a sharper blend. Some of these edits will be noticeable, but shouldn’t take away from the entire piece as did the silences. So, get downloading.

Little Dragon and lyrics: “Ritual Union”

Here is our attempt at translating the words to the title track from Little Dragon’s upcoming record. Hopefully they are correct, although they probably won’t be. At least it gives you an idea for the sing-along. I’ll attempt “SummerTearz”, “NightLight”, and “Little Man” later.

Ritual Union

Ritual union has got me in trouble again
I was wonderin’ of a white dress
And a mistress
And her spirit – holding my hand!

Love sinking in the sand
Petals falling on demand
My feet are running like the wind
I’m sorry, boy – that we sinned
Love is not like they say
I lied, it’s hard to make it stay
I drown my feelings in the sea
Then dried out over on the beach

Ritual union has got me in trouble again
I was wonderin’ of a white dress
And the mistress
And a spirit – holding my hand!

Mother, tell me how it is
I know you’ve been through all of this
You ran away so many times
Your kids, your heart, a couple of dimes
Love is not like they say
I lied, it’s hard to make it stay
It drowns my feelings in the sea
I dried up over on the beach…
