While traveling through Sweden it made perfect sense to give some heavy air time to the new Jens Lekman record put out by our friends at Service. Scrolling Pitchfork this morning I came across this great feature where he performs three songs and explains them away in typical Jens fashion. Jenny has always been a big fan but it took me a little while to get used to how literal his songs are. I have to admit to having a soft spot for his approach now and have really enjoyed going back through some of his older stuff, discovering gems like early single “Maple Leaves”.
