Over the next 11 weeks I’ll dig deep into the 2014 Coachella Music Festival lineup, featuring one band per day. The purpose of this piece is to assist in difficult decisions that inevitably you’ll need to make, as well as, serve as a fun countdown to Coachella Week. Note: All bands appear in a completely random order… Enjoy, and let the countdown continue!
Day 28 = Little Dragon
Performing = Sunday
Little Dragon are an indie electronic band from Gothenburg, Sweden that formed in 2006. The band is fronted by Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano who got her start by singing on a few Swell Session records in the early zero’s. Ms. Nagano’s temper tantrums that she’s known to throw at times in the recording studio, is said to be the origin of the Little Dragon name.
The quartet has released three studio albums, and just announced this week that their fourth album Nabuma Rubberband will drop on May 13. Two days ago the band released the lead single “Klapp Klapp,” and are scheduled to appear on David Letterman this coming Wednesday (Feb 19).

If trip-hop electronic beats are your thing, similar to the ones Saint Etienne made popular, then this one is definitely for you.
