Lykke Li - Wounded Rhymes

From the first track, it’s clear Swedish songstress Lykke Li intends Wounded Rhymes to be a far darker album than her debut. It’s in the title ('Youth Knows No Pain'), the thick organ and the absence of the girlishness in her voice that characterised such songs as 'Little Bit'. On 'Get Some' she famously announces "I’m your prostitute" over intense drumming, but there’s also gorgeously intense longing on 'I Follow Rivers' and 'Love Out Of Lust', complimented by vaguely exotic arrangements. Wounded Rhymes isn’t always so compelling, yet there’s a depth, experimentation and earthiness here that's missing from much of our homegrown stage school produce.
