lykke li – live at dc’s sixth and I (1.31.09)


Lykke Li’s performance Saturday night was a very pleasant surprise. I have been waiting to see her for a while now since discovering upon her earlier last year. Where “Youth Novels” may be inconsistent at times (overall very good of course) Lykke Li’s live performance was pretty impressive. The studio versions don’t prepare you for the energy she puts out in her live performance. For only being 22, she definitely carries across great stage presence and puts on a thoroughly enjoyable show.

I will try to do some better media and reporting with future shows so you’ll just have to settle on this for now (there’ll be some M.Ward, Primal Scream, Cut Copy, and of course a SXSW week on the blank slate in the coming months). The video is awful (it was so dark!) but the sound is decent; here’s a new track followed by a clip off of “Little Bit.”
