Cat Martino (she released a killer song a few months ago and I cannot get enough of it lately- download it here) tweeted about this Little Dragon NPR set earlier, so I figured I’d check it out. I haven’t even finished the first song yet and it instantly put me into a calm and trance-like state. I’m also loving Yukimi Nagano’s (lead singer) voice, it is so mellow, yet so...
