Lykke Li

March 14, 2011

The new Lykke Li record is pretty rad. I get the feeling that each of her releases is the byproduct of intensely emotional output. “Love Out of Lust” is a sultry, personal come on while “I Follow Rivers” feels like a plea that’s borderline threatening. The video doesn’t help. Her look into the camera at the end is just as icy as her surroundings. The dude in the video breaks down like I did when I forgot about daylight savings time until about 4 in the morning on Saturday night.
