Lykke Li - I'll Get Some

I have had two weeks to fully digest the new Lykke Li album. Yes, it is an entirely different sound. The seemingly young and innocent Li grew up with her newest album "Wounded Rhymes". Even her singing style transformed from her girlish whisper into a strong female lead voice.

The content is more mature and the sound is BIG and polished. At times she almost sounds like she has been transported into a Pains of Being Pure at Heart meets Peter Bjorn and John recording session. There is a soft velvet fog over the entire album. Its lush and over the top. Its perfect. Fans of hers might scratch their head after watching "Get Some" but give the album a chance. She will win you over again.
