FRESH MEAT: Jens Lekman

Jens Lekman is a Swedish singer-songwriter whose debut 'Oh, your so silent jens' captured the hearts of indie kids worldwide. His deep Sinatra-like crooning cascaded over swirling samples and 60's bedroom sonic's, whilst his lyrics remembered killer cab-drivers and Warren G's 'Regulate'.
He has now released his new album 'Night falls over Kortadela', and it too is crammed full of orchestral bliss, downtrodden lyrics and his ever present tenor. To freshen up, i've posted some links to inteviews with the man over at Pitchfork.
Here's a musical primer:
The opposite of Hallelujah
