Dear Yukimi Nagano (of Little Dragon),

When I heard you sing on the first album I was instantly hooked on your voice. It reminded me of Erykah Badu, who I’m convinced has as much soul as anyone on this planet. Paired with some stripped down, left-field hip-hop beats and a heavy dose of synth, I connected on all levels.

Four albums later, I finally caught a show (in Dallas). After seeing the live set I need to go back through Machine Dreams with a fresh ear.  When I first gave it a listen I wasn’t ready for that breed of icy, synth pop. It came across well live and but it’s still your voice that holds me through it all.

Thanks for the great show.

PS: Did you know that the local Dallas rap group A.Dd+ sampled Twice? Check it out:
