Little Dragon’s 2007 self titled album stays on constant rotation in the iPod. It’s the type of album that you fall in love with from day one and never let go of again. Having that said, when I feel this way about an artists’ first album, I usually get anxious about their sophomore release. I’ve been dissapointed so many times by artists who either try to be more “pop” or forget that classic sound that made them famous whenever they get back into the studio for the second go round.

However, after listening to Little Dragon’s track “Fortune,” I’m not only less anxious for their sophomore release Berlinmaster, but I’m eagerly anticipating it. Everything that made me love this group in the first place is still there: the off kilter yet subtle beats and Yukimi Nagano’s magical voice still reign supreme.

Not much is known about Berlinmaster, but the fact that they just dropped a video for it (from Japanese animator, Hideyuki Katsumata) means that its hopefully coming real soon (via The Incubator).

Sidenote: I posted the divShare link as my away message and 5 people IMed me about it, so apparently I’m not the only Little Dragon fan around.

    Heard about you from over at Soulbounce. Love Little Dragon and glad to see the animation continues. I loved the “puppet show” from the Twice video. I dig their creativity and her voice is magic.
