I mean as if you didn't know already, but there is a new Little Dragon single out and they're going to be touring this year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AsLISPht_M The subject matter of 'High' is about as subtle as a saucepan to the face, as are the lyrics and the video. But, it's Little Dragon so it's obviously brilliant.
