You’ve had a chance to hear a couple of tracks from chilly Gothenburg electro quartet Little Dragon’s sophomore album Machine Dreams. Like last time, the focus of “Blinking Pigs” is vocalist Yukimi Nagano (and her haunted nights), though the beat and a few synthesized laser squiggles have a way of working their way into the focus/eardrum as well. The pop hook’s also a bit more immediate this time, too (i.e. it’s not just for the dance-floor addicts).
