A little over an hour ago I blogged here about the breakup of my big iPod obsession, Be Your Own Pet, breaking up. Fortunately, my other big iPod obsession for 2008, Lykke Li, will not also be (which is uniquely difficult for a solo artist).
In fact, she has a brand new video out for her song "Breaking It Up" and it is both fantastic and below.
If that was not enough info, her debut album, Youth Novels, will be in record stores in 2 weeks (August 19).
Plus! She's embarking on another US tour and will be in Seattle on October 29. The rest of the dates are:
08.25.08 – Los Angeles, CA – Hotel Café (SOLD OUT)
08.28.08 – New York, NY – Le Poisson Rouge (SOLD OUT)
10.19.08 – Washington, DC – Black Cat
10.23.08 – Boston, MA – Paradise
10.24.08 – Toronto, ON – Mod Club
10.25.08 – Chicago, IL – Empty Bottle
10.28.08 – Vancouver, BC – Richards on Richards
