El Perro Del Mar and Lykke Li Tonight and Tomorrow
Lykke Li, staring down the lens in her MySpace photo
The pretty young Scandinavians are skipping across the Atlantic so fast nowadays it's hard to tell who's opening for whom. El Perro Del Mar, a/k/a Sarah Assbring, weeps over girl-group nostalgia; she's looking down and away in her MySpace photo. Lykke Li, a/k/a the Next Robyn, says it straight over minimal pop futurism; she's staring down the lens in her MySpace photo. Come for the shrinking violet and leave with the dynamic scene chewer. Or vice versa. — RYAN DOMBAL
