SF Sound Architect Tycho Building Buzz, Plays Independent Saturday

 Odds are, you don’t know Tycho, which is fine. But perhaps you know Scott Hansen, the San Francisco-based sound/visual artist behind the crypticism. He resides happily below the radar, where his sonic permutations can grow and change however his muse dictates.

10 Questions for Swedish Pop Songstress Lykke Li

Lykke Li, the latest Swedish pop sensation, is a force with which to be reckoned. She may be small in stature, but the girl’s got a big sound and a lot to say. The songstress, who produced her first album Youth Novels with Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John, is a new-wave sort of feminist on a mission to reclaim what it means to be a woman. She’s smart, sensitive, moody, and wise beyond her years. Wounded Rhymes, her latest musical experiment, was released in March to positive reviews. The album—which is often on repeat at my desk—is simultaneously dark and danceable, complex yet interspersed with beautifully simple ballads, refined with a touch of roughness. Li, who’s currently braving a fierce touring schedule, took a few minutes to get deep with 7x7.
