I Follow Rivers

Chris Lowe of the Pet Shop Boys reckons this is ‘that fantastic combination of beautiful chords with really great moving lyrics’. He’s not wrong. Summer bottled, compressed and stuck up on the internet (from back in 2011).

>Like Lykke


Swedish indie/electropop siren Lykke Li has a new album, Wounded Rhymes, out soon. You can probably find half of it already if you look in the right internet places- the bloggers like her. Or lykke her. I can see the appeal. This is I’m Good, I’m Gone from previous album Youth Novels remixed in fine style by Metronomy in 2008.
