Trainer Track: “Ritual Union” by Little Dragon

In podcast, Trainer Track on September 7, 2011 at 8:08 am

We all run for different reasons; but, in some way, we’re all trying to feel good. Esquire Magazine recently pointed out the influence that Prince had on this band, and specifically, this song. And that’s really worth noting (even if it’s just a guess): yes, this song, Trainer Track: “Ritual Union,” Little Dragon is sexy the way Prince is. It will have you grooving on the curb if you have to wait for a light. It’s okay: the people in cars will relish it. The song is all beats–all synthesized sound–really, it’s pretty simple. But Swedish-Japanese-American singer, Yukimi Nagano, kills it with an almost staccato-sultry delivery. Practice snapping and running at the same time.
