In honor of the massive, Kings of Leon/Walkmen show tonight at the A.J. Palumbo Center, I have decided to put up a video of Swedish songstress Lykke Li performing an impassioned version of KOL’s “Knocked Up” on Last Call with Carson Daly, courtesy of the folks over at Stereogum. At the same time, I put this video up with a tad bit of contempt for the Fallowil faithful, as they roll into Pittsburgh at arguably the height of their success, fresh off a slightly embarassing cover story in Rolling Stone. Honestly, Lykke Li’s version is better, especially with the added sexual tension of watching her slink around on stage, grasping more than a handful of mic wires and going on about keeping her baby in almost a southern draw. She does the pouty young girl thing better than anyone in the business right now, and its worth taking a look.
