Tracey Thorn wrote a song that reached Jens in the early stages of his new album, I Know What Love Isn't. In her song she sang "Oh Jens, oh Jens / your songs seem to look through a different lens / you're still so young, love ends just as easy as it's begun." A touching moment for the Swedish songwriter, having been a fan since his teens. But it came to him in a time when ... Read more in Amazon's Jens Lekman Store

Editorial Reviews

In the symbology of Lekman's songbook, motion is a means to stave off insanity or succumb to it and the songs on An Argument With Myself EP deal with many types of movement, both big and small, from why he moved to Melbourne to the societal change/movement in his old hometown of Gothenburg to simple map directions. With more fractured textures that combine horns, flutes, string swells and arpeggiated guitars, the opening of the EP finds Jens in constant state of transition, musically, as well.

I am a huge fan of Jens' and I didn't even know this had come out until I went to his show the other day. He sings songs about arguing with himself while walking around in Australia, stalking Kirsten Dunst and other unusual topics. His bouncy, pop melodies are extremely catchy and his guitar playing is awesome. He also writes thoughtful, smart lyrics that keep you coming back. His songs are catchy, soulful and feel honest. Did I mention that he has a great voice? He does. This is a great EP. A lot of fun with a good sound.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Markus Rauchenwald on October 5, 2011
Format: Audio CD
He's absent-mindedly walking the streets, observing backpackers, going back and forth over the same old things. That's in Melbourne, his home for the last two years. "Waiting for Kirsten" plays in his native Gothenburg. Again at night, again because of a girl, again no luck. So while he's waiting he muses about what the country has turned into - where a decent guy like his friend Emanuel can't get proper healthcare anymore. He promises to take him back to Santiago, Chile, where he may breathe the fresh air of the Andes, and taste the full-bodied red wine. If only he gets better. There's much yearning in his voice.
