Swedish band Little Dragon are back with their fourth album, Nabuma Rubberband, which KEXP's Music Director Don Yates describes as their "most impressive set yet of chilly, R&B-tinged electro-pop."

This Friday, May 16th at 5:00 PM, Sonic Boom Records is hosting the Nabuma Rubberband Derby. Construct one of these nifty rubberband-propelled derby cars, and you might be the lucky winner of a limited edition signed Lithograph poster and an official Nabuma Derby trophy. The band have provided a list of materials, and Sonic Boom has a limited amount of kits ready for your construction. An instructional video is posted below to help you craft a car as smooth as frontwoman Yukimi Nagano's vocals.
Even if you don't get your car finished in time for Friday's race, you can still build one and submit it to the band on social media to be entered to win a trip for you and a friend to see Little Dragon at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee! Just post photos on Twitter or Instagram using #NabumaDerby and tagging @LittleDragon & @Redbull. Good luck!
