Based in Santa Monica, California, Fragile Dragon have created a unique electronic sound. Spearheaded by Phillip Benn, Light Bend and Rhythm takes the listener on a first class cruse of exactly what can be achieved using electonica.

This is not the usual thump thump stuff associated with the dance crowd, but something much more creative. There is music! For the most part I find electronica to be coma inducing, the endless mathematically computer generated drum loops, and synth riffs do not appeal.

Phillip Benn has created something different with Light Bend And Rhythm, he has taken a musical idea and layered it, much like a tradition band would do. This may not be Billboard top 10 material, but it is quite listenable, even enjoyable.

I did some research online and discovered that Fragile Dragon has a MySpace page, and offers some musical samples. I am a big fan of the ‘try before you buy’ idea. Take them out for a test drive and see what you think.

If you do like them, you can pick up a copy of Light Bend And Rhythm from MVD.
