I figure I’d end the night with something Swedish since I was on a little tear there.
Hot on the move this year is Lykke Li (if you haven’t already heard). I like the original version of “I Follow Rivers” better than the Dave Sitek (from TV On The Radio) remix. But he does add something different. The original was dark and haunting. In this version, there are a few more organic elements added such as the tambourine, bass, keys and horns (ha, I hate to say it but the horns remind me of the big guns from ska bands back in the day). The cloudy atmosphere at times is removed to give shine of a groovier beat. It’s a fun change up.
