Fireplace Food for Friends: Lykke Li

16 02 2009

A truly inspirational, outstanding, and intelligent artist. The first time I checked out Lykke Li’s myspace and heard “Tonight”, I ran straight to the piano. So simple, yet so complex. Her songs are a fascinating take on modern day songwriting and relieve the indie-lover of his pains in the succumbing times of commercial pop music (not that I should be speaking). Maybe it’s the scandivian roots, maybe it’s funky name – this music sticks like chewing gum in hair. More praise is not necessary, this music speaks for itself…

My recommendations are the ever so popular “Tonight”, “I’m Good, I’m Gone” and “Little Bit” (the rest is good too though). You can hear it all on her myspace page:
