“Scale It Back” F. Little Dragon (Video)

    Here’s the thing: it’s not that DJ Shadow’s new album, The Less You Know The Better, isn’t good. It’s just that it’s not cohesive, at all, and it sounds like he’s having trouble finding exactly which style he wants to go with. But when he and his guests truly connect on the record, the results are killer. Take “Scale It Back,” for example, which features Little Dragon frontwoman Yukimi Nagano doing what she does best: knocking it out of the park vocally. And even though she doesn’t show up in the video for the song, you’d be hard-pressed to really notice given the engrossing visuals that were apparently shot in one take. It’s impressive, to say the least, and you can watch the video below. [OKP]
