Little Bit

What is with all the incredible Swedish music coming out lately? I mean, is it the longer winters? The sunlit nights of summer? The blondes everywhere? Whatever the cause, the Swedish Invasion is in full swing, and a recent addition to their roster is Lykke Li. Her first album, Youth Novels (produced by the Bjorn third of Peter Bjorn and John), came out in her homeland earlier this year, but has just this week been released in the U.K. and is scheduled for sale in the States later this summer. For months now she’s been featured on mix- and muxtapes galore, and rightly so. Songs like “Little Bit” showcase a bubblegum voice as strong as any Britney-wannabe we got, but lyrics and music that are far less stupid.
