Right now I am listening to Lykke Li's 2008 release "Youth Novel." This album is great. This swedish artist mixes multiple sounds and beats to her poetic voice. Each track has a different and unique flavor. In the opening track "Melodies and Desires" Li mixes spoken word with ambient tones. In "Let It Fall" she sings catchy phrases to a simple drum beat and quiet bass line.
