    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
