Another perfect song from Jens Lekman's I Know What Love Isn't , starring Jens' out-of-season sportcoat and his goofy smile at the 1:29 mark. The album's due Sept. 4 on Secretly Canadian and, having pre-ordered the shit out of it, spoiler: it's a stone classic.
Swedish crooner Jens Lekman dropped a new video recently for the title track from his forthcoming album I Know What Love Isn't . This album was released early to people who pre-ordered it, so I've had some time to enjoy it for quite a while already, and although I personally love it all the way through, I always find myself drawn back to this song in particular. In its three minutes and 33 second duration, "I Know What Love Isn't" offers a condensed version of practically everything great about Lekman's music, from the carefree melody and playful arrangement to [...]

Primero que nada hay que decir que la canción no resultó tan acústica [...]

Sweden's Jens Lekman has a unique way of looking at life and relationships, especially relationships, so when he announced his new album I Know What Love Isn't I knew there'd be some wistfully honest songcraft about to hit our shores. If lead track "Erica America" wasn't enough he's now revealed the video for the album's title track "I Know What Love Isn't" , bare and simple, and all done in one take. The track is tight, too, and I'm [...]

Marcus Söderlund fue la persona encargada de la direccion. [...]
Jens Lekman's recent " Erica America " video was a single shot that started with a tight close-up on the singer-songwriter before gradually roaming around and showing the rest of Lekman's band playing the song in a gray room somewhere. We recently posted video of Lekman singing the lush and self-deprecating "I Know What Love Isn't" live, and now we've got the video for the song's studio version. In this one, we get a single shot that starts with a tight close-up on Lekman before roaming around and showing the rest of the band, except this time it's [...]

Jens Lekman finally reveals a piece of his new album with "Erica America," another gloomy cloud obscuring the summer sun.
Jens Lekman turns in a deceptively simple Take-Away Shows-style video for "Erica America," the lead single from I Know What Love Isn't . He's also showing a lot of scalp - Shirin must've been booked. The new album (which is as great as you're hoping it will be, promise) is due Sept. 4 on Secretly Canadian . Happy 4th of July.

From singer/songwriters to shoegaze and chill wave, each video this week takes us to places both real and imagined... Sun Kil Moon 's newest record, Among The Leaves , is one of Mark Kozelek's most revealing albums to date. What's even more revealing is how often he makes a video for one of his songs... almost never. Until now. Jens Lekman 's I Know What Love Isn't doesn't come out until September 4th, [...]
Jens Lekman will return with a new album titled "I Know What Love Isn't" on Sept. 4 via Secretly Canadian, but our first taste of the the follow-up to his EP, "An Argument With Myself," seems rather somber. Melodrama is nothing new for the Swedish crooner, but the sentiments on the record's first single, "Erica America," go far beyond illustrating the album title. The dichotomy of the ballad is painted with delicate pop-jazz melodies, and Lekman's peculiar melancholy prevails with lyrics like "Summer is exhausting me with its exhaust fumes and empty promises." The Mark Soderland-directed video is beautifully [...]
