Wow I really can't believe I haven't mentioned Little Dragon on this blog before, they are truly my one of FAVORITE bands!! Lead singer Yukimi is this little tiny thing with a crazy voice and a curiously endearing stage presence (hence her nickname and name of the band: Little Dragon. I've also heard it's because she's feisty like a dragon in the studio).

I got really into her unique voice (that I can only describe as soulful with a touch of tribal), her style, and her music after a guest appearance with the Gorillaz at Coachella 2010. Immediately, I began digging up and listening to everything with her voice on it including her collaborations with SBTRKT, DJ Shadow and her run with the band 'Koop' (masters of sampling). Last year I made sure to see Little Dragon whenever they were in the bay area including a tiny chinese restaurant here in San Jose, CA (photos below) and this performance at Ameoba, San Francisco. Check it out:
