LYKKE LI has been busy working on her highly anticipated fourth studio album and first for RCA Records entitled so sad, so sexy, set for release on June 8th.
Since the release of her debut EP Little Bit in 2008, Swedish chanteuse Lykke Li has become an iconic staple of the indie-pop world with a decade spanning career. With three acclaimed albums under her belt, Lykke has accrued endless accolades. From “Best Album of the Year” nods from the likes of The New York Times and Rolling Stone to performing on the renowned stages of music festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella and Lollapalooza, 2018 finds Lykke on new stages with new music to share.
In 2016-2017, she was busy nurturing, liv, her love child with Andrew Wyatt, Björn Yttling, Pontus Winnberg & Jeff Bhasker — a project that allowed the collective to mutually have a creative outlet. Outside of music, Lykke Li is a partner in YOLA Mezcal — a brand created in collaboration with her friends Gina Correll Aglietti (chef and stylist) and Yola Jimenez (an activist and Mexican entrepreneur), who the mezcal is named after.
TiRon & Ayomari
LA based upstarts TiRon & Ayomari (a.k.a. T/A) blend an overtly musical style with forward-thinking and honest perspectives that make them one of the most exciting hip hop groups to emerge in years. Unafraid to defy convention and cliches that usually bound rap artists, the duo has slowly built a substantial buzz by releasing absolutely no filler material–only carefully crafted songs, projects, performances and visuals.
Released in 2011, their universally acclaimed debut A Sucker for Pumps was a concept album about women, men, relationships, love and everything in between. To it's credit, #ASFP
has been lauded by Complex, RapGenius, XXL, LA Weekly, The Source, Life+Times, Hypetrak, and enjoyed by fans worldwide.
While working on their follow up album, The Great New Wonderful, T/A were intent on sharing their creative process by releasing an EP in 2013, The Wonderful Prelude, which received critical praise.
The album, The Great New Wonderful, displayed a considerable growth and maturity to their sound. It was about learning to manage the ego, expressing yourself and accepting yourself. T/A touch on themes involving happiness, self confidence, togetherness, belief and freedom.
Their new album, WET: The Wonderful Ego Trip, is the flip side to The Great New Wonderful. It indulges in all of the attractive elements that make the ego such an addictive drug.
