If you’re not familiar with Jens Lekman, your music elitist girlfriend or boyfriend probably has heard of him and most likely made a few mix CDs (I know, I’m dating myself) with songs from Lekman alongside artists like fellow Swedish folkster Jose Gonzalez, The Knife, or Belle and Sebastian. But Lekman is a lot more approachable than your hipster friends want you to believe. While his music is a little more different than your average indie pop artist, Lekman’s music is reminiscent of everything from The Beatles to The Smiths. And even though some of his songs are a little melancholy and others are dance-y and upbeat, Lekman’s unique instrumentation sets him apart from most indie popsters.
