Friday Clock Out presents:

Eyeye by Lykke Li
For the 33rd time, LJ will be hosting Friday Clock Out!
Have you ever had that annoying friend who wants to weigh in AT LENGTH about the merits of the American release of The Fall’s Country on the Click when compared to the original U.K. release? LJ can be that friend. He’ll also probably spin something from the new Lykke Li album. Maybe some John Grant. There’s a new M.I.A. single, remember her?
