Jens Lekman


Recommended Posts

Ok, I really do not have to right to be starting this thread! I just found out about this guy, Jens Lekman, and frankly I think he's fantastic.



"Jens Martin Lekman is a Swedish indie pop musician residing in Melbourne, Australia."


The thing that really drew me into him are his LYRICS. They are hilarious! I just recently found him, of course, but a few of his songs had me on the floor laughing! Specifically "Postcard to Nina" and "I Am Leaving You Because I Don't Love You" and "The Opposite of Hallelujah". The lyrics are just very frank: "I took my sister down to the ocean/but the ocean made me feel stupid". :roftl:


I was just wondering if anyone else has heard of him! I don't know nearly anyone here who does, but I thought he might be more popular in foreign countries.


If you haven't heard of him, definitely look him up! You will laugh so hard!

I had a dream that he had a book out last night. The lady in the store told me it was an excellent book, but I was broke so I tried to steal it. I think the dream happened because I want to buy the rest of his CD's but I don't have any money. :naughty:

Am really really liking the Wouter Hamel album. Thank you to one of my fans who gave this to me yesterday. It's kind of like Jens Lekman
