I have decided that it is about time that I add a regular weekly feature to this little blog of mine. Since my 'music' label is the fullest of them all, it only makes sense to get the ball rolling on this one. So it is with great excitement that I introduce to you, Sunday Sounds!
What you can expect?
Wonderful songs, new albums and classic tracks from some of my favourite artists, coming to you in the form of YouTube clips (until I figure out how to embed a play list without breaking some copyright rules).
I'll start this off with I Follow Rivers, the second single coming from Lykke Li's new album Wounded Rhymes. This album has been rotated between my car and my bedroom for quite some time now. My original thoughts on the album were: different! Especially since it came as such a surprise. It was only in August last year that I was craving some new Lykke Li, and hoping for an album release (you can view that post here). But what I was craving and was I was given were the exact bi-polar opposites of one another. Her debut album Youth Novels was exactly that, sweet and sugary stories of frivolity. But this one... oh my! Lets just say that the only thing this album shares in common with its sibling is that the title completely hits the nail on the head; an album full of wounded rhymes where "sadness is her boyfriend". She's hungry, she's dark and she is incredibly dirty. I'll admit, immediately following the first start to finish listen I was a little depressed myself. I'm not saying this is a bad thing. Not at all. It's honest songwriting and I love that. It's just different. Anyway I'm rambling now... do enjoy this track!
