A lot of people can sense the darkness in Lykke Li’s second album, Wounded Rhymes, which was just released February 25 of this year.  She equates her dark mood to the freezing cold winters of Sweden, her homeland, which is why she chose sunny Los Angeles as the setting for writing this album.  In an interview with Pitchfork, she described the city as mysterious because “there’s so much evil in that city, but there’s also so much light.”  The mystery really comes through on Wounded Rhymes.  There is something barbaric about it yet also very intimate, but always on the darker side.  This is the first single off the album, “Get Some.”
