Lykke Li

So you say you’re a fan of Feist but you’re tired of listening to The Reminder. Well Lykke Li is just what the doctor ordered. Take two doses and call me in the morning. This is going to be my soundtrack all summer. The sound reminds me a bit of Candie Payne but this is 1000 times better (rough estimate).

This is an amazing live acoustic version of her single “I’m Good, I’m Gone” and the fantastic official version below:
