Jens Lekman is playing Golden Plains too!

March 5, 2008


It feels wrong to call Jens Lekman’s songs funny because it makes him sound like some two bit comedy singer, so I think I would say they are more witty then funny. They are good too (in case you were wondering). He is a swedish pop musician who mainly plays guitar and sample based pop tunes (with strings!), plus he sounds a bit like Morrissey, except only Swedish and well not really… that much like him.

He has songs about swearing, cutting his hand while chopping an avocado and pretending to be a lesbian’s boyfriend so her father won’t know about her girlfriend, but they are all done in such a classy yet fun way that it would be very wrong to call them novelty songs. His voice is very soothing (?) and his lyrics are exceptional, probably the main thing that attracts to his music. If you want some sweet (like nice, not ‘sweet’) pop songs then check out the mp3s below okay?

    is it just me or do jens and beirut look very alike?

    also, do you read Under The Radar magazine, it’s the best *indie* music magazine I’ve found as yet, it’s brilliant.
