8/10 Mike Staff review, 08 May 2014

Masterful Swedish synthpoppers Little Dragon are back this week with their first album in about three years! It's been worth the wait, though, as they sound as silky and sultry as ever. 'Nabuma Rubberband' is a collection of economically written, soulful synthpop with subtle nods to electro and bass music woven into their slow-flowing, wistful melodies and sleepy beats.

The title track is a stand-out, a relentless booming bassdrum and fingersnap beat with a thin, tinny snare, a yearning soul-pop vocal and some super tasteful disco violins. 'Killing Me' a couple of tracks later also impresses with a thuddingly danceable Donna Summer-meets-Janet Jackson strut with a hard-hitting, skeletal beat and relentless burbling synths. Despite all the nods to the past, this is a crisp and coldly modern-sounding record in many respects, especially given all the love that synths have been getting of late.

Although they have quite different sounds, ultimately what sets Little Dragon apart is kind of the same as The xx - they have good songs and good ideas and present them in an uncluttered and seductive way. It's simple and it works.
