“I Follow Rivers” comes from Lykke Li‘s upcoming album Wounded Rhymes, a far cry from the hard-hitting first single, “Get Some.” Even the lyrics animation video is fluid and beautifully done. You can pre-order the album at LykkeLi.com.

Grillade – “Just A Sad Christmas”

Ever since Giant Step blogger Rehes introduced us to Grillade in their SXSW adventures, we’ve seen the group move on up in the blogosphere, their video “Dream Of You (Emotionally Yours)” just featured as video of the day on AOL.com, premiered on Okayplayer. Unearthed, adored and reinvented by Grillade, “Just A Sad Christmas” is the groupʼs first official release and is available on iTunes, Amazon and other digital retailers now.

Neither holly nor jolly, the song is a cover, originally performed by Soul Duo and recorded for their second ever 7” single in 1969. Grillade vocalist Ragen Fykes: “‘Sad Christmas’ embodies the soul of Christmas now. It has meat, it has bite. It reflects on the vast majority that are shadowed by Jingle Bells. Not everybody is standing under the mistletoe this year, not everyone is having a Holly Jolly Christmas. Its The christmas song you would never hear, but should hear. It offers a musical release from Grillade, for those in need. Tis the season.”
