“Audacious and beautiful…pop is rarely as genuinely affecting, joyful, or good as this."—The Guardian
Swedish singer Jens Lekman reveals new dimensions in baroque chamber pop with a disco edge that buoys his fresh and heartfelt observations of the human condition. On the captivating Night Falls Over Kortedala, his latest release, he mixes orchestration and sampling to great effect as he underscores his artfully unorthodox lyrics. Ever the lovelorn soul, he regularly draws comparisons to the Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt with his melancholic streak and wry wit. But Lekman definitely covers his own territory—the infinite universe he sees in his Kortedala neighborhood in Gothenburg.
