“The problem is, they said, he has no fear. But it seems to me that exactly the reverse is true: he has too much fear, so much that he is driven to enact the thing of which he is afraid, lest it should happen of its own accord.”
NEW SONG: LYKKE LI – “LOVE ME LIKE I’M NOT MADE OF STONE”.
“Li has just announced her third LP, I Never Learn, and has released this gorgeous, heartbreaking video for album track “Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone”. The track features nothing but Li’s voice and a simple acoustic guitar, but that’s all she needs for this one. The melody slowly ebbs and flows into these painfully emotive peaks, culminating in the glorious climax around the 3 minute mark where she takes what seems like a natural, unplanned pause. The sadness in that rest is palpable. This song is all about Li’s passionate vocal. Simplicity has worked for her before and it serves her very well here.
