LITTLE DRAGON

Icy Swedish electro-pop crew best known for "Wildfire," a sharp, squelchy collab with mysterious electronic producer SBTRKT (he of the goofy tribal headgear) that Drake (he of the hyper-earnest solipsistic tenderness) surprisingly seized onto for a remix, conveniently triangulating AnCo's whole vibe. Little Dragon's 2011 album Ritual Union is fizzy and fluid and pulverizingly cool, much like Centipede Hz; it's also understated and minimalist, very much not like Centipede Hz, which sounds like 12 stereos playing 12 copies of Ritual in not-quite-unison.
