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.
