Listen: Lykke Li - 'Unchained Melody' (The Righteous Brothers Cover)

by The 405 (Google+), 13 October 2011

That I'm perhaps too lost in ethereal synths, or so desperately clinging to melody and emotional context that I really can't get behind the dreary wash of noise created by a room full of guitars?
