It’s been a minute since we’ve heard new material from Lykke Li, well by herself anyway, so we were thrilled to hear “Come Near.” It doesn’t stray far from the songs on 2011’s Wounded Rhymes–which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. There’s heavy percussion and lots of chanting. Something about bon-bons, too.
Have a listen:
“Come Near” will appear on INGRID VOLYM 1–the first release from the Swedish super label INGRID. Here’s more about them:
Ingrid was created over numerous cups of pitch black coffee at Mellqvist’s in Stockholm: a place where tall men, homecoming stars, sailor boys, toddlers, seekers, and women so beautiful it hurts, come together to discuss the indifferences of who you are and what you ought to be…
Beyond complaints of harsh winters and lack of a real good Mexican joint, other topics started to swirl around the tables. Isn’t there more to life than world tours, indie cred and empty pockets? Couldn’t we be creating straight from the heart right to the people without any middle hands? Is it not 2012?
In a heartbeat, Ingrid was created. Consisting of members such as: Miike Snow, Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn and John, Nicole Morier, Jocke Åhlund, Johanna Beckman, Jonas Torvestig, Tomas Nordmark and Nille Perned, Ingrid plans to offer a home for the new guard of musicians and artists. The opportunity for creation, collaboration, and compilation sonically and visually, Ingrid will provide in an unadulterated space.
God Bless the Internet
Long live the Vinyl
Ingrid I’m so glad to have found you!
