Lykke Li

Friday, November 11, Ogden Theatre, 1-888-929-7849.

There is no one box to check for Lykke Li: Part pop star, part soul singer and partially just her own weird and appealing self, the Swedish performer can place her voice into any fold and command the instruments around it. Only two full albums into a relatively newborn career, the singer weaves lush and wire-like vocals among synthesized beats, organs and acoustic guitars. Melancholic youth is a prominent theme in her lyrics, making her an obvious choice for a contributor to the Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack in 2009. Li has also worked with the likes of Kanye West, Robyn and Kings of Leon on a diverse array of collaborations. Why such exposure hasn't lead to a wider appeal is perplexing, considering that Li is also the bearer of magazine-cover good looks, and that live, she has a magnetic on-stage persona that channels Stevie Nicks with a Siouxie Sioux darkness.
