When we talked to her for FADER 71, Lykke Li said, ""I'm so fucking old and I'm so young," and that a lot of her newest album Wounded Rhymes was, in spite of her youth, "almost like a siren of death." In the ocean of our lives, is sorrow the only love we'll know? After finishing her record, Li said she was dealing with that, and with lust, infatuation and obsession. "The way I think I should handle it is to just have a lot of fun." Gold Panda plopped a fatty-bass heartbeat at the core of "Sadness is a Blessing," made it something to be fine for now and feel better to.
