Lykke Li, 'Little Bit EP' (LL)

7
Little Bit EP
Critical Mass
Label: LL

by Matthew Perpetua

Lykke Li's timbre and vocal phrasing may bear a striking resemblance to fellow Swedish pop singer Robyn, but her music is far more delicate. Rather than borrow from Europop or modern R&B, the stark, minimalist tunes on Li's debut EP (produced by Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John) are built upon the clack and clang of acoustic percussion and little else, aside from occasional bits of guitar or saxophone. The songs sound exceptionally intimate, to the point where it's easy to feel voyeuristic when listening on the title cut to her unguarded declaration of love.
