now playing:tuesday

i found this weeks artist on the cover of the current issue of Foam Magazine (surf, art, music magazine):

Lykke Li
"Wounded Rhymes" is the second album from this young Sweedish songstress.  Her sound is a mix of indie rock, pop, and a little electronic hipster.  The thing that drew my attention is her almost Stevie Nicks "raspy voice." In my eyes no one comes close to Stevie Nicks....but Lykke Li has that raspy quality to her voice.  Most of the songs on the album are upbeat and will definately be put on my "Driving to the beach" playlist.
So far Lykke has been featured in a few movie soundtracks, including the Twilight Saga's "New Moon" and "Sorority Row"(? never heard of that movie).  She has also performed at 2009s Coachella and Lollapalooza.
She is definately one to check out and watch.  Her album "Wounded Rhymes" is now available on iTunes.
