What we know: Ah, an album with actual details. Undoubtedly, the image of Sweden's Lykke Li brings about descriptions like "gentle," but for her sophomore LP, Wounded Rhymes, Lykke Li wants to be in your face.The songbird says the album's mood will be much darker than 2008's Youth Novels. She told Pitchfork that she wants to be "amongst the men, topless, throwing things onstage.” Yes, please. Her first single, the aptly titled "Get Some," should be proof of just that; already remixed by the likes of Beck and the Beastie Boys' Mike D, the provocative jam is an impressive first step towards what we predict will be a bangin' album.
