Hmmm so nobody has heard Jens, thats ok, I just got a new album thats really really really worth listening to, specifically the song 'Riverbed'. Paul Duncan is fantastic. He reminds me a bit of the Great Lake Swimmers. Check him out, yo.
-If you like Sufjan Stevens and/or Jose Gonzalez...you'd probably love Jens Lekman.
A few months ago I was at Dartmouth and I saw Jens play...and it was really amazing...intense and so personal. I believe they just released his next CD "Oh You're So Silent Jens", which I've been listening to over and over since I first got it...my favorite songs being 'Rocky Dennis' Farewell Song', 'Jen's Lekman's Farewell Song to Rocky Dennis' and 'Black Cab'.
I read this quote over Thanksgiving:
"That will be my last show in a long time. Tomorrow I will start looking for a
job, maybe I'll be a telephone interviewer again... at least that's what I've
been telling the customs when they ask what my profession is. The recordings
I've been working on have been put on the shelf. I am not happy with them and
so I can't say that there's a new record on its way. I actually can't say that
there's ever gonna be a new record at all."
Recommend albums, songs, bands, etc.
