The breadth of Little Dragon's neo-soul electronica makes you wonder how the band ever could have been relegated to underground status, as they were prior to the release of their self-titled 2007 debut. The Gothenburg, Sweden, foursome's 10 years of obscurity must have helped to hone the group's singular grasp of dreamy, danceable pop, which is made all the more engaging by the endearing, elastic vocals of Yukimi Nagano. Little Dragon's new album, Nabuma Rubberband, isn't out until May 13, but previews of tracks like "Klapp Klapp" find the band delving into dancier synth-funk territory, à la the New Power Generation or even Janet Jackson. Following the band's performance for the Soul'd Out fest, Little Dragons dive headfirst into the maw of the festival circuit, with sets at Coachella and later this summer at Bonnaroo. RYAN J. PRADO
