Lykke Li

Some months ago I asked a musically savvy friend Hance, for any new album/artist suggestions. I love what I love, but tend to find what I love through suggestions from those that love music as much as I do (and, of course, a lot of suggestions from Indie Rock Cafe, Pandora, and Lastfm). I had already heard about Lykke Li but didn't pay much mind to it, but when he told me he was listening to her a lot, I felt compelled to give her a shot. Liked it a bit more then, gave it some time, and these past two days have been Lykke Li mania! A lot of people like to compare her with Lady Gaga, but don't go there....

Check her out - love this song...



Tonight

watch my back so i'll make sure
you're right behind me as before
yesterday the night before tomorrow

dry my eyes so you won't know
dry my eyes so i won't show
i know you're right behind me

and don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

you walk the surface of this town
the high heels above the ground
and high horses that we know
keep us safe until the night

you know them all, i know it all
stay put and play along
'cause i'm looking for my friend
now i got you, got you

don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight


i dry my eye, dry my eye
falling deeper by the hour
dry my eye
dry my eye, dry my eye
don't let me fall deeper now
dry my eye...

yeah,
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

let me go, let me go
let me go, let me go

don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

Oh, interesting sound. She kind of reminds me more of an electric Cat Powers w/a little Lily Allen. I'll have to look through her other stuff.

I'm not quite sure what music you're into and I have quite the eclectic taste (as I suspect you do too) but one of my favorite indie artists is Laura Jansen. I found her on www.thesixtyone.com. She's SO indie, she's not even on Pandora ;)

I look forward to more of your picks =) I always love finding new artists.
