Fewer beats and more feeling - if you were to encapsulate the difference between the Gothenburg band's last album, Ritual Union, and their fourth, it would boil down to a gentle retreat from the dancefloor in favour of textured atmospherics, both in the (excellent) playing and production and in Yukimi Nagano's silken singing. Operating on the cusp of the electronic pop mainstream, Little Dragon are musician's musicians, and this is another fine entry into their parallel universe. It's not the break-out record that they might have gone for, though.
