Oh, You're So Silent Jens
My new obsession: Jens Lekman.
And Mike is to blame. We bought records on Friday (for the first time in 2006 I think). He got the Jens, and I got Palomar and the new Neko Case.
Ever since Friday I cannot get enough Jens! I looked him up and he's pretty cute too!
He's like a straight, Swedish version of Stephin Merritt. And Calvin Johnson sings backup on a pretty pretty song that I have listened to on repeat for the last two days.
I am always the last to know about awesome things! And to make matters worse, my internet friend Sarah tried to tell me about him more than 6 months ago and I didn't pay attention. Since then he's played in NYC twice and I missed him. I am the worst.
If I knew how to link to song tracks, I'd do it. If you like cute boys who sing about sweet things and are Swedish, this is the thing for you!
