Lykke Li-Wounded Rhymes (LL Recordings/Atlantic)

There’s nothing like a bit dark Scandinavian pop on a bright spring day to set the mood.  I say this with all seriousness as there is something morose yet strangely uplifting about the Lykke Li’s second album.
Li had definitely improved from her debut and has replaced ambiguity with a new fiery attitude.  She seems to have grown in confidence and has made her songs bizarrely depressing without being depressive.  There are also more ballads on the album than her first album which work quite well and suit her style perfectly and could see more of the folk songs from her.
After hearing this obviously pop records by Scandinavian pop temptresses are the way forward.
