Little Dragon - "Let Go"
The new track from the forthcoming Little Dragon LP, Nabuma Rubberband, took me by surprise. My memory of their last full-length, Ritual Union, was of an album replete with upbeat numbers and an unrelenting forward momentum. But going back to that album after hearing "Let Go" this torch-song doesn't seem as anomalous. Tracks like "Brush The Heat" and "When I Go Out" were - in their own way - slow-burners like this one. But I'm certainly hoping the rubber band snaps back toward the likes of "Shuffle A Dream" and "Ritual Union" on this new record.
