little bit of love for the us

When first we caught wind of Sweden’s Lykke Li, we were instantly charmed. The way that girl so coyly works a street corner? Precious. So while the 22 year old’s MySpace page has been the recipient of some rather serious traffic ‘round these parts, it’d be nice to take her debut EP Little Bit home sometime soon. That’s where her very own label, LL Recordings, comes in.

On May 6th, LL will release Little Bit for the first time in the US. Recorded in both Stockholm and New York City, the EP was produced by none other than Peter, Bjorn and John’s Bjorn Yttling. Dicing exotic, international tricks and trinkets together in one cosmo cool pop concoction, Lykke Li’s three minute gems comprise one of the more percolating collections to hit our ears this year. With both a head for song craft of an intricate, yet slightly minimalist nature, and a feel for exotic, textured timbres, we’re pretty sure this here gal is headed for one special kind of year.

Lykke Li will also play some shows ‘round the US. We got the dates below.
