Wounded Rhymes is the second studio album by Swedish recording artist Lykke Li, released on 24 February 2011 by LL Recordings. Recorded in Los Angeles, the album was produced by Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John, who also handled production for Li's debut album, Youth Novels (2008). Upon release, Wounded Rhymes received acclaim from music critics, who viewed it as an improvement on its predecessor. It produced four singles, including "I Follow Rivers", which charted inside the top five in several European countries.

Background and writing[edit]

Li spent six months writing and recording the album in the Echo Park neighbourhood of Los Angeles, while visiting the desert, rewatching Alejandro Jodorowsky's 1973 film The Holy Mountain and listening to Alan Lomax field recordings, eventually coming up with songs she calls "hypnotic, psychotic and more primal".[1] In an interview with Pitchfork Media on 18 November 2010, when asked if "Get Some" was an indicative of the rest of the album, Li responded:

"It's just a snapshot, but the album is darker, moodier, and the lyrics are heavier. There's less atmosphere, more directness. I was 19 when I recorded my first album, and I've been exposed to many things during these last few years; all the baby fat is gone. I dove into the craziness and did things that maybe I would think twice about when I get older. And I'm a really restless person; I'm tired of the way I sounded or looked yesterday. So it's hard to hang onto this image of me as this young Swedish female in this world. People comment on how you look, it's so unnecessary. I just wanted people to listen to what I have to say instead of focusing on anything else. And, of course, there are a lot of things I'm angry about in the world."[2]

During the same interview, she also explained her decision to write the album in Los Angeles:

"I'm from Sweden so I don't enjoy winter at all; there's nothing cute about it. Right now I'm in Stockholm, and it's so fucking cold and dark. I have such a dark mood in myself already so I don't need things to be darker.

I was totally romanticizing the idea of Los Angeles when the Doors, Joni Mitchell, and Neil Young were hanging out there. I was trying to find David Lynch and Leonard Cohen with no luck. It was just more of a retreat. And Los Angeles is such a mysterious place because there's so much evil in that city, but there's also so much light. You can be totally alone on a hillside and I love that kind of secluded, deserted rawness."[2]

Li unveiled the album's artwork and track listing on her official website on 14 December 2010.[3]

Promotion[edit]

Li premiered songs from the album during live performances across Europe in late 2010.[4] She performed at Heimathafen Neukölln in Berlin on 1 November 2010,[5] at La Maroquinerie in Paris on 2 November,[6] at Heaven in London on 4 November,[7] at Kägelbanan in Stockholm on 8 November,[8] and at Klub Wytwórnia in Łódź, Poland on 20 November.[9] Additionally, she performed at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City on 1 December 2010.[10]

Li performed "Get Some" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on 3 March 2011,[11] on Conan on 10 March[12] and on Last Call with Carson Daly on 15 March.[13] Li also toured Europe and North America in promotion of the album, starting at El Rey Theatre at Los Angeles on 9 March 2011.[14]

"Get Some" was released as the album's lead single in Sweden on 22 October 2010 via iTunes.[15] Follow-up single "I Follow Rivers" premiered exclusively on SPIN.com on 10 January 2011,[16] and was released digitally in Sweden on 21 January 2011.[17]

Wounded Rhymes was lauded by music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 83, based on 34 reviews, which indicates "universal acclaim".[20] Lou Thomas of BBC Music referred to it as "another outstanding album, slightly better and definitely bigger than Youth Novels. Although there is a level of subtlety at work here far more sophisticated than most mainstream releases, the sound's sheer size is almost overwhelming."[31] Corey Beasley of PopMatters described it as "a dark record, borne of lost love and youthful frustrations, more suited in tone to the frozen lake country than the haze of sunny SoCal. It means this is a seriously heavy and seriously excellent album."[27] K. Ross Hoffman of Allmusic wrote that Li "hasn't entirely let go of her girlish sweetness, and she certainly hasn't lost her way with a melodic hook, but she's largely outgrown the more cloyingly precious, occasionally clumsy tendencies that sometimes plagued her debut, and her singing voice, while still appealingly personable and distinctive, has gotten considerably more forceful", while praising the album as "an inspired, rugged, smart, emotive, coolly modern piece of indie pop, and an improvement on Lykke Li's debut in just about every respect."[21]

Rolling Stone critic Jody Rosen dubbed the album "a weird-pop gem" containing "torchy love songs that nod to Sixties hits but are stretched into all kinds of shapes. Li dips into garage rock and wintry folk, but her guiding spirit seems to be Phil Spector, and she laces the music with booming percussion and girl-group-style romantic melodrama."[28] The Observer's Hermione Hoby viewed it as "a formidable collection of all-woman 21st-century torch songs that reverberate with vengeance and desolation. The arrangements are still stark and driven by syncopated handclaps and off-kilter drums, but now, voice creaking with heartache, she sounds like she's casting dark spells rather than serenading daydreams."[32] Kevin Liedel of Slant Magazine expressed that the album "is not so much a stylistic departure as it is a stark transformation of mood: Though still an expert dabbler in gravelly electro-pop, Li sounds positively dangerous now, her voice tormented, biting, and weapon-like, and her accompaniments following suit." Liedel continued, "There is a mournful sensuality to Li's near-broken voice that contributes to the album's most triumphant moments, as her every word drips simultaneously with sex and tragedy."[29] In a review for Spin, Sean Fennessey stated that the album is "equal parts seething ice princess and lonely snowwoman, vacillating almost track by track between fury and despondence over a scotched relationship", adding that "[t]he dual objectives—weep for me, fear me—collide throughout, creating a dicey, but gripping album."[30] Stephen M. Deusner of Pitchfork Media awarded the album with Best New Music and described it as "an album of stark, scintillating contrasts: between fantasy and reality, between the powerful and the vulnerable, between the brash and the quiet, between the rhythmic and the melodic."[26]

Amanda Petrusich of Entertainment Weekly commented that "[w]hile her 2008 breakout, Youth Novels, was quirky and coy, Wounded Rhymes is hungry, dark, dirty."[23] The Guardian's Michael Cragg opined that "sadness tends to suit her, with producer Björn Yttling [...] encasing the songs in a heady mix of primal drums, tinpot percussion, scratchy guitars and, on the excellent 'Love Out of Lust', a desolate whistle solo."[24] Jazz Monroe of the NME concluded that "for all its wailing codas, swollen strings and silky production, Wounded Rhymes, while a bold statement, doesn't quite strike the same lugubrious groove. But while we bemoan flash-in-the-pan pop stars, it's encouraging to see someone like Lykke sparking attention."[25] John Freeman of Clash called it "brilliant" and stated that "[w]hile opener 'Youth Knows No Pain' and the feisty single 'Get Some' both display Li's 'don't-fuck-with-me' sassiness, Wounded Rhymes really takes off when she allows her vulnerability to leak."[33] Amy Dawson of Metro found the album to be "big, beautiful and badass, often all at the same time".[34] Paste's Ryan Reed noted that "Li's voice is basically a mixture of every great female art-pop artist you've heard: there's a bit of Kate Bush's alien whine, a pinch of Bat for Lashes smoke-screen atmospherics, even a hint of fellow Swedish pop sensation Robyn's sassy croon."[35] August Brown of the Los Angeles Times felt that the album is "full of charged contradictions. She's a mediocre singer with a very interesting voice, a fan of classic handmade pop and the ways laptops can serrate it, and a writer obsessed with sex and with sexing up obsession."[36]

Accolades[edit]

Slant Magazine placed the album at number two on its list of The 25 Best Albums of 2011 and wrote, "Slinging her rigid vocal cords like a truncheon, the Swedish songstress sure knows how to bring a party down, purring and pleading in 'Sadness Is a Blessing' [...], adding twang to her pangs in 'Unrequited Love,' retreating into a sad clown-infested trash compacter in the stark, album-capping 'Silent My Song.'"[37] Entertainment Weekly ranked it at number three on its list of the 10 Best Albums of 2011 and described it as a "haunting album [with] a frosty Euro-electro twist on American girl groups", adding, "With enough doomed romance to make the ­Shangri-Las cry, Lykke Li ­captures the sadness of ­unrequited love with two words that need no trans­lation: shoo-wop, shoo-wah."[38] The New York Times named Wounded Rhymes the eighth best album of 2011, calling Li "thoroughly catchy" and noting that her "hand-clapping, tom-tom-pounding, foot-stomping, guitar-fuzzed, organ-puffed songs hark back to 1960s rock but are also subliminally aware of programmed, relentless 21st-century dance music."[39] Spin included the album at number ten on its list of the 50 Best Albums of 2011, stating, "On tribal stompers [...], groovy psychedelic tunes [...], and Wall of Sound symphonies zooted on Ambien [...], she plays soothsayer, temptress, and Ronette. Li's rhymes may be bluesy, damaged goods, but that's just the way this goth at the crossroads likes them."[40]

Clash, on its list of The Top 40 Albums of 2011, listed Wounded Rhymes at number nineteen and commented, "On each track, her wise and weary vocals glide over rattling percussion like a train over tracks. Some chugging at tender speeds ('Love Out Of Lust') and others careering into magnificent chaos ('Get Some'). And as much as Lykke rejects the labelling of Swedish pop, there is a definite gust of Scandinavian atmosphere through everything she does, but a much bleaker perspective than we're accustomed to. She's the thinking man's Robyn. A devastated Abba."[41] PopMatters ranked the album at number twenty-three on its list of The 75 Best Albums of 2011 and defined it as "a more rounded album which reflects Li's huge musical and emotional growth while betraying real and relatable humanity where hollow pop artifice might otherwise have held sway. The stellar tunes are impressive enough in themselves, but it's the emergence of Li's fully-fledged pop personality for which Wounded Rhymes will be remembered."[42] Pitchfork Media placed it at number forty-three on its list of The Top 50 Albums of 2011 and opined that "Wounded Rhymes is deliberate and rhythmic where Youth Novels was moony-eyed, and Li wears her newfound confidence well, bolstering it with heavy drums and big choruses. Her vocals are deep and grainy, even when she's confessing her devotion."[43]
