Ritual Union finds the experimental, late-night charm of their debut LP colliding with the more upfront and danceable sounds of Machine Dreams. Already a blogger's delight, the first single "Nightlight" sounds like Erykah Badu fronting the Psychedelic Furs, with a healthy smattering of digital funk and alt-soul. "Brush The Heat," their most club-friendly track yet, is a dancefloor detonator with the most infectious cowbells since Jay-Z told us about his "99 Problems." Title track "Ritual Union" is sleek and soulful electronic pop at its best. Little Dragon released Ritual Union after having collaborated on recordings by Gorillaz (Plastic Beach), TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek (Maximum Balloon), SBTRKT (SBTRKT), and Big Boi (Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumours). The album was recorded during gaps in their schedule as worldwide support for Gorillaz. – Press Release

Straightaway Yukimi Nagano’s husky-yet-girlish vocal weaves amidst the shape-shifting backdrops of minimal funk, dreamy pop and electro soul, and you’re mesmerised. It’s dark and downbeat, smoky and soulful, and if you can get past the Duffy-esque intro, ‘Ritual Union’ is the rich vindication of Little Dragon’s slow burning upturn. - CLASH
