Episode Summary

Lykke Li
Swedish singer Lykke Li crafts perfect pop songs and each track she's revealed from her new album is better than the last. Lykke will perform new songs from that highly anticipated new record, Wounded Rhymes, live on Morning Becomes Eclectic at 11:15am. Transcript: Jason Bentley: Lykke Li live on KCRW, very nice! Lykke Li: Oh, thank you! JB: So this is crazy but one of our engineers, John Lewis had brought in a 7" from your dad's band from 1978. LL: Yeah? Which one? JB: Dag Vag is the name of it and I can't really...maybe the single is called "Dimma." LL: Yeah I think so. I don't know! I don't know it so well, actually. JB: It's crazy, isn't it?

So it leads to a question about your upbringing and your family. I understand that both your mother and your father were in bands as you were growing up. LL: Yeah, my mom was in a band for a very short time. She realized it wasn't really for her. But she did start one of the first female punk bands. And then my dad was actually the musician in the family. JB: So, was it always sort of predestined that you were going to be an artist and a musician? LL: No, not at all really because my dad — he made lasagna, that's what I remember the most. So you know I really think I tried to follow my own path…but I did end up as an artist somehow. JB: Well did they kind of nurture that in you at all or you just kind of struck out? LL: Well, they're really free. They don't tell you to do anything, so I think I just followed my own path. I don't really remember them telling me anything to do. I studied hard, you know. I tried to rebel so I got good grades but they were like "Yeah…great…whatever." JB: Ha! It's like "How about an F once and a while?" LL: Yeah! So I domoreless
