Lykke Li saves the DAY!!
This Swedish damsel is in anything but distress. The first track of hers that I heard was DanceDanceDance. This song fuses the unlikely blend of early Bjorky melodic sensibilities, some 60's pop tinges and a Lou Reed saxophone solo into a sound that is completely her own. She makes no bones about being in your face melodic with her structuring and choruses while still having a serious DIY feel all along through the tune. Lykke Li is a remixer's dream and this Loving Hand (Mark Ronson) remix I'm posting below. Lykke Li is a breath of fresh air in the oh so WAY too serious world of dance music today. Bring that beat back Lykke!
OH, also... she's performing at the Paradise in Boston on the 23rd of October. Yesh Yesh Ya'll... That be next Wednesday. See YOU there mon frere.
