Trying to shoot dead center for the musical heart of Los Angeles’ Lucky Dragons is no easy task. How does one target what holds together the work of a group of artists who cover so much creative territory at once? Folk, electronica, world, rock, pop; there certainly exist glimmers of each dancing around the Dragon’s transcendent craft. But to pinpoint and prefer one over the other…to say the experimental group’s music is more one thing than another…it doesn’t really work. No matter. Lucky Dragons are nothing if not unpredictable…which of course coats each new release in a film of mystery. For their 18th(!) such record, the Dragons set out on a pursuit of “a humble and ecstatic, drippy and explosive, smoldering and upset music for our experience in America right now”. How descriptive! How immediate! Of course, by right now, the band and their PR people actually mean May 6th. That would the date they’ve chosen to release Dream Island Laughing Language on Marriage Records. - David Pitz Dream Island Laughing Language Tracklist: Side A 01 clipped gongs 02 starter culture 03 drinking dirty water 04 morning ritual 05 free guys by the sea 06 desert rose 07 mirror friends 08 band hammer 09 givers Side B 10 my are singing 11 i keep waiting for earthquakes 12 typical hippies 13 wander birds 14 realistic rhythm 15 tune for wind dog 16 wooden cave loop 17 oh i understand Bonus (CD only) 18 very 1 19 very 2 Lucky Dragons also have a handful of shows scheduled for this Spring/Summer.
