This whole CD is so good. Wounded Rhymes is the sophomore act from Sweden’s Lykke Li, and she kills it. You probably have heard the name before (Drake’s remix of “Little Bit” and N.A.S.A.’s “Gifted“) but you need to hear more of her. Rumored to be performing at this years Lollapalooza festival, Atlantic Chairman Max Lousada believes “she’ll be a hugely significant act globally.” Check her out as the cover girl for Spin’s March edition.
“Get Some” is heavy on tribal drums, and the lyrics find Lykke (pronounced Likk-ya) Li conflating herself with a prostitute as she writhes all over the track. Recently remixed by Beck as well as the Beastie Boys’ Mike D, I guarantee you’ll like this one.

“She took a song we’re very proud of and brought it to another level.”
