Little Dragon is bigger than ever! Not only is their new record, Nabuma Rubberband (Loma Vista Recordings), getting major buzz around the world, the band has also teamed up with RedBull for the Nabuma Derby! Fans have a chance to win tickets to see the band play Bonnaroo. There are two ways to win. First, build the fastest rubberband derby car and take home an exclusive Little Dragon prize pack. Second, upload a picture of your derby car to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #NabumaDerby, and you could win two tickets to Bonnaroo (which is headlined this year by Elton John, Kanye West, Jack White and Vampire Weekend). Visit the Nabuma Derby site for details. Contest is being held now!
Little Dragon visited Amoeba Hollywood on Record Store Day and managed to sneak in some shopping. Of course they hung out and shared their findings with us! Yukimi and Erik kick things off with a couple of really cool shirts by jazz great Pharoah Sanders and '80s new wavers Devo. Yukimi digs up a classic twelve inch by Janet Jackson, the infamous "Got 'Til It's Gone." Legend has it the late great J.Dilla produced this hit, but credit was given to Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis! Clearly big fans of hip hop and R&B, Little Dragon also pick up Midnight Marauders by A Tribe Called Quest, which Erik calls the "best record in the world," and Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" on vinyl. Check out the full episode for all their great finds!
