Jens Lekman - The Opposite of Hallelujah

28 Feb 2008

Jens LekmanIt’s been a while since I posted a foundsound (which by the way, for ease of updating is now integrated with the journal – I know it makes the RSS redundant – sorry!). Just when I feel I’ve exhausted the free downloads out there, along come Jens Lekman. I bought ‘Night Falls Over Kortedala’ last year after a Last.fm recommendation, and it took me a few listens to get hooked (but hooked good and proper). Jens is a superb songwriter in the vein of Pelle Carlberg – retro sound with contemporary lyrics.

My favourite off that album is “A postcard to Nina” the tale of being made to ‘meet the parents’ and pretend to be the boyfriend, but ‘The Opposite of Hallelujah’ is a close second, and gives a good flavour of the album.

Download Jens Lekman – The Opposite of Hallelujah. There’s more available on Jens’ site
