The time has come for the Swedish, pop crooner to prepare the sweetest dessert before the night falls over this beautiful world.
It's so syrupy sweet rumor has it that Jens bought a bottle of syrup, molded and froze it into the shape of a master tape and called it a day.
If no one told you today, I love you, Jens.
This is everything you could want from an indie pop album. There's something so captivating about Jens Lekman's super-smooth baritone, and the juxtaposition of his outwardly innocent delivery and eminently quotable, witty lyrics is both honest and brilliant. Each melody is pristine, and I haven't heard anything quite like the instrumentation either; I don't know if these strings and horns are the sound of Kortedala or not, but I wish they could soundtrack my own life.
