Swedish songwriter Jens Lekman is sort of a puzzle. His music channels some kind of combination of Belle and Sebastian, David Bowie, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Daft Punk, but what really sticks him out are his lyrics. They’re so intimate and conversational, it feels like we’re sitting on his couch having a drink and chatting while some seriously groovy music is playing on the stereo. Lekman has come a long way in his musical career; he got into music after being asked to play bass in a wedding cover band and now he’s touring on his recently released album Life Will See You Now. Jens stopped by the studio to show us some of the tracks on his new album, check it out below!
