Tonight, young, soulful Swedish indie-pop singer Lykke Li performs her only U.S. show of the year. In her time off, she's released a song on a Twilight soundtrack, posed for Levi's jeans, and released the single from next year's Wounded Rhymes, which has the chorus, "I'm your prostitute/You're gonn' get some." Needless to say, she's become a different woman since her 2008 debut, Youth Novels, which bore the lyric "I'm too proud for love" on her breakthrough song, "Little Bit." Judging from the bongos, '60s production, and, of course, the lyrics of "Get Some," the difference between being 22 and 24 is a good one.
