    Lykke Li

    http://www.lykkeli.com/

    New song "Get Some" could be one of, if not her best single yet IMO. Free download INCLUDING a gorgeous b-side called "Paris Blue." The lyrics are pretty heartbreaking:

    All the while you lit your streets for me,
    I cursed the pavement that I walked
    All the while you loaned your nights to me,
    I was unable to forget.
    So I didn’t kiss you like I should
    Didn’t grace you like I ment.
    Never once did I lay my eyes on you
    And all along you saw me cry.

    I’m Paris blue, I miss you
    I’m not good enough for you Paris blue
    I’m no good, I’m no good, I’m no good,
    Paris blue.

    All the while you shared your heart with me,
    I was unfaithful in your bed.
    My thoughts drift towards Malibu
    Wishing he was by my side
    So I blamed you for the rain,
    Blamed you for my loss
    Maybe once but never twice for you
    Oh momon I did you wrong


    So excited for her sophomore album. I was late in truly loving Youth Novels. Honestly, it was her live show that sold me. She was brilliant! I'm hoping that type of energy finds its way on the new record, due early 2011.

    Lykke Li fan right here!



    I've got a ticket to see her in in London in April. So excited!
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    I'm sad she's not putting Paris Blue on the album. It's absolutely beautiful.

    It'll be easy to add in there somewhere, I bet! But yeah, I love Paris Blue. Can't wait to hear the full album!

    I'm really excited for this album. I've been kinda off her for a while but Get Some seriously kicks ass.

    I'm getting quite excited for this release.

    She just released this untitled video/art piece where she's stabbing pocket knifes into sand and flinging decks of cards into the wind, all the while in fabulous pumps.



    Reminds of the short "film" she did for Moses Berkson, "Solarium":

    Clips of the songs are up on iTunes! The album does seem more somber and in the vein of I Follow Rivers but that's not a bad thing. I've started to really love that track. The video elevated it to another level.

    I love the new single & b-side and I just downloaded Youth Novels but haven't listened to it yet.

    "I'm your prostitute, and you're gonna get some" is a very un-sexy come on, but I like goofy sexual talk like that. (Slutty goths and fembots, etc!)

    Literally playing on repeat for about 20 mins now

    And the video seems to be inspired by Jonathan Miller's 1960s film of Whistle And I'll Come To You?

    I'm experiencing some kind of awesomiclasm right now

    New fan! I found Lykke through a remix that was posted on a blog. It's quite lovely and I'm excited to hear the new album!
