Sweden-born Yukimi Nagano has worked with José González, Koop several times and is now the lead singer of Little Dragon. When cornered to characterize Little Dragon's style, the answer was somehow "Disco Dub", though Yukimi herself is probably just better listened to than labeled. (Hover for descriptions)

I love Scandavian music. BIG fan of Thomas Dybdahl.

Interesting! Little Dragon's Twice is one of my favorite songs of the past few years, fragile and beautiful.

I saw that Koop song long ago when I saw it on a show I think Moby did on MTV. I really liked it through it's simplicity, and somewhat as a throwback type song. Always wanted to know more about the singer, and now I do. Thanks cashman!

Hey, if we're doing Swedes, have some fun with the Tough Alliance (SLYT).

Huh, Little Dragon's out on Peacefrog. I'm impressed.

Neat. Reminds me of Shuggie Otis with a better singer and lyrics that actually make sense.
