Lykke Li Melts The Loop

lykke li

Another week, another Swedish female topping the loop; this time our new favourite song marks the return of Lykke Li, about to release her new album ‘I Never Learn’. If the tone of its second taster, ‘Love Me Like I’m not Made Of Stone’, is anything to go by, it looks it will be a darkness and heartbreak-infused opus.

Veteran groundbreaker Michael Gira with his Swans is the highest debut alongside new offerings by Woods: Tinashe Feat. Schoolboy Q; The War On Drugs on a heavily nostalgic edition that sees some sort of 90’s retro offensive featuring the likes of D’Angelo; Roddy Frame; Luke Haines; Kim Deal, but gets crowned by the comeback of scousers extraordinaires Echo And The Bunnymen.

THE SHORTWAVE SET-No Social

Collectively nicknamed as Blog Rock, during this decade a big number of new artists discovered by the increasing presence of music blogs online, have grown to be a parallel world coexisting with the big-buck marketing of the four majors oligopoly, being a true engine for the industry’s renewal.
