This review is from: I Know What Love Isn't [+digital booklet] (MP3 Music)
I was first introduced to Jens Lekman when I found a cell phone video of a concert where he covered Paul Simon's hit "You Can Call Me Al" ([...]). Beyond being just a SOLID cover of a great song, I was amused by how Jens playfully teased the audience by refusing to sing the chorus of the song. The little wells of laughter from the crowd just killed me.
Fast forward a few months and scrolling through Amazon's digital music deals I see his name and a $5 album and say to myself "Why not?".
Pretty much the rest of the week, I'm calling friends over to my desk and showing them the music videos for "Erica America" and "Become Someone Else's" simply because I needed someone I could sit with and say "Isn't that just SO GOOD?"
It's not my normal type of music, but I'm glad I have it to listen to on a good long drive, or when I'm just looking to end the day on a good note.
