“Get Some” by Lykke Li

24 Jun

Lykke Li and Johan Söderberg are not afraid of old stereotypes. They just pick them up and use them as stone tablets to write in their new laws. When this  Scandinavian heathen valkyrie adorns herself with typical male sexual metaphors, those metaphors start to smell like shrunken heads and gleam like hunting trophies. So we better be careful what we call her since she is going to use it against us in her satanic dissemination rituals. In her voodoo, a word we might have dropped carelessly can be applied instead of a lost hair. In the center of the kaleidoscope she is dancing to the beat of the tribal drums while pulses of light move in on us from the “heart of darkness”. Her ink-stained fingers make clear: she is the one in charge of the Rorschach test.
