So I'm just getting back from the Lykke Li show @ Webster Hall.
PHOTOS COURTESY YARDENA SCHWARTZ, THANK-YOU GYRL!
As a matter of fact, it's probably just wrapping up, but for those of you who are hip to game, I had to be out, we works nights...not a night worker tho'. But boy oh boy what I did see! That woman has STAGE PRESENCE in spades, definitely one of my favorite artists of of the moment. Just something about Sweden, (what's up Lydi!) because her opening act, Wildbirds & Peace Drums, was dope too. The lead singer's voice reminded me a lot of Feist, very pure and ethereal, and powerful too. This duo is just the vocalist w/ minor synths, and drums, imagine how strong her pipes have to be holding her own, bare juxtaposed against a sick drummer? A great way to kick off the week.
Shouts to the GYRLS: Yardena, Mawuse, Paloma, AnnaMaria, & of course, of course Roxy!
