I will always remember our failed attempt to see Lykke Li, in Madrid, as 10 ish guys (ok, it was a stag party) turned up around 10.30 at the venue, to see her roadie’s dismantling the set! Not our finest hour, and I’ve carried this chip on my shoulder to her, ever since. In what I see as an attempt on her part to redress the balance, she’s giving away a couple of free songs on her web site.
‘Get Some’ and ‘Paris blue’ are available for the price of your mail address, here. Both seem lovely to be honest. Here’s a taster of some of her earlier work. It could almost be included in ‘Music for babies’ if she didn’t include the line ‘for you I keep my legs apart’!
