Little Dragon – Machine Dreams
Yesterday’s Buff 1 mixtape had me listening to this album today. What I like about them most is the retro 80’s feel with the heavy use of a “soulful” synth bass – can’t have too much synth bass. It’s a very clean, immediate, and honest sound, not many studio tricks with the instruments or her voice. Sometimes it feels like they are playing in front of you, with your headphones on. Recommended as a switch up for fans of 80’s bands like Human League or Depeche Mode. Good for cool people get-togethers as well. Snazzy cover, huh?
