So without wasting any more of your time than needed, below […]

Lykke Li Is Still Lonely In The “Gunshot” Video, Despite The Bikers And Twerkers

Lykke Li‘s stunning new album I Never Learn, is a heartbreaking one. I’ve gone on about this before, but it’s just that distressing. Someone give her a hug and a puppy. A sense of foreboding continues in the video for “Gunshot,” an artsy take on either the apocalypse or a Wal-Mart parking lot. Lykke Li, […]

Stream Lykke Li’s New Single, “Gunshot”

Indie songstress Lykke Li has released her third single, “Gunshot,” off her upcoming third studio album today. The single takes more of a sodden pop route, tracing heartbroken lyrics out in a pretty produced, anthemic piece of sweeping vocals and sturdy guitar work. All in all, it sounds in line with her other work while ditching […]

Get Bummed With Lykke Li’s New Video For “No Rest For The Wicked”

So Lykke Li dropped a new song bearing the title “No Rest For the Wicked” last month and, like the very worst of the snarky internet commenter crowd, I made Cage the Elephant jokes. Now, after watching the video for that same song, I feel pretty terrible about myself. The loneliness that Lykke Li laments on […]
