earworm: Lykke Li

She's pronounced "Lee-ki Lee." Kind of like "lickey lee," but that's a bit of a crass English translation. I looked her up on youtube for interviews to double check how you say it. She's a Swedish pop star who's not unknown, so this isn't about new, fresh music. She's got plays on radio stations.

What this is about: the sinuous, liquid, swishing-in-my-head "I Follow Rivers" that will have you singing the chorus on the first listen. And a girl crush. A soft, sweet voice, lovely cool music, and a banging top bun that I wished I had worn more when my hair was long enough to do so. Yeah, I'm crushing. (Don't worry, James thinks she's cool, too.)
