baby don’t go

baby don't go

As I mentioned last month, we've been smitten lately with Dum Dum Girls' "blissed out buzzsaw" of irresistible girl group harmonies and insanely catchy, fuzzed-out noisepop gems. "Jail La La" is without a doubt one of the songs of the year so far, and her dreamy, reverb-soaked new cover of Sonny & Cher's 1965 hit "Baby Don't Go" confirms that DDG can also nail a heartbreaking slow jam...

mp3: kanye x santogold x lykke li :: "gifted"

Tracks from that ridiculous NASA record that comes out in February are starting to surface. The one with Chuck D and David Byrne was a little much, but Nah Right has the mp3 for "Gifted" (aka "the one with Kanye, Santogold, and Lykke Li"), and I give it a resounding "not that bad...

The UK's Friendly Fires are supporting Swedish pop heroine Lykke Li on her current, mostly sold-out U.S. tour (thanks for skipping TX, guys). Before they left their home in St. Albans, they kicked out this cosmic-disco* cover of Lykke's "I'm Good I'm Gone," which Beggars was kind enough to send over for us to premiere. If you're up for even more danceable Friendly Fires, go here to grab an awesome new remix of the band's "Paris" by the great Aeroplane, complete with vocals from Au Revoir Simone.

In other Lykke Li cover-related news, her Little Bit single is out now in the UK, and features Lykke's previously unreleased cover of Wendy Rene's "After Laughter," perhaps best known for its use by the RZA as a sample on a Wu-Tang classic. The single also features this remix that we posted a while back, courtesy of DFA's Tim Goldsworthy (bonus remix by TX's own Aether not included on single):

new lykke li video :: “breaking it up” [alternate version]

Here's a new, "alternate live video" for Lykke Li's "Breaking It Up," shot "in one take live in Stockholm" by Christian Haag. I'm digging this new, slightly wheels-off version of the song, and of course, Lykke's awkward/adorable "dance moves" are highly entertaining, as usual...
