Wow, so happy to have Lykke Li back… She shared Gunshot yesterday and like the other two releases from her upcoming album ‘I Never Learn’, the lyrics are pretty sad. But the drum beat and chorus really pick this one up.

Huge fan of Lykke Li. New album ‘I Never Learn’ released May 6th. Stoked.
St Vincent’s new album is sounding pretty damn amazing. My favourite cut so far is Prince Johnny. It has gorgeous melodies and a pop sensibility that makes it a bit easier on the ear than some of the other more jaunty tracks. I’m also loving the brazen guitar at the end of Huey Newton and more gorgeous melodies on Severed Crossed Fingers.
Incredible live video directed by Spike Jonze. This was probably my favourite track last year… I have so much love for this band. And the official video directed by talented director Emily Kai Bock (Grimes/Oblivion; Grizzly Bear/Yet Again) draws on another interpretation of the song.
Cousin Cole! I love him. This is brilliant!
I also think he does by faaaar the best remix of Miguel’s ‘Adorn‘.
If you haven’t heard this beautiful cover of Michael Jackson’s Human Nature yet, get involved. It’s a regular feature of her live shows and it’s lovely.
Each release from this new band is better than the last. And their first track was pretty damn good. The London based trio’s latest track is loaded with the band’s characteristic ethereal quality, but packs a bit more punch than previous releases. Check out their flawless live performance of the song here.
