Sweden’s Lykke Li offers up a mini-film for her latest video “Sadness Is a Blessing” starring herself and fellow Swede Stellan Skarsgård, who just happens to be one of the best actors on the planet. I’m just saying. The tune is something of a homage to the sounds of ‘60s girl groups with that Phil Spectoresque wall of sound. It’s yet another fabulous song from an album chock full of them.

If youth knows no pain was the mantra Lykke Li once lived by, that's certainly not the case on her latest effort, I Never Learn.

If there was any justice in the world, Lykke Li would be our most valued Swedish import, not Steig Larsson. If her stunning second album is any indication, justice may soon be served.
