Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Looking for an easy to dance to electronic/pop album.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Pretty normal, kinda boring, not my favourite.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Yeah absolutely.

Final Thoughts:

Little Dragon has been one of those bands that I love a few of their jams but often don’t give them the credit they deserve. This short album deserves your attention, mostly because it’s a lot of fun. They aren’t reinventing the wheel here, they’re just making good music, and I’m happy to have some more of their tunes back in my life. Season High makes me so excited to hear what else they have in store for us, it’s a nice little tasty album with lots of dance beats. I can’t wait to see where the band goes next, and if it’s anything like this impressive album we all should be taking notice.

Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Want some down-tempo funky electronic music with an FKA Twigs styled lead vocalist.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Perfectly suited for their vibe, cool looking cover, would be stoked to see it on vinyl.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

No shit. (Yes I would like to)

Final Thoughts:

Little Dragon’s Ritual Union was one of my favourite jams back in College, and now they’ve added so much more for me to geek out over with Nabuma Rubberband. It’s a great album with just so many hits and very professionally done. Little Dragon has mastered their craft, bow down and be blessed by their sound.
