Lifted off one of the albums of the year, the JENS LEKMAN performs the title track, I KNOW WHAT LOVE ISN'T , via the Jimmy Fallon show.
The JENS LEKMAN 's long_one is firm 012 fave of mine and his newest video, BECOME SOMEONE ELSE'S , he treks sand dunes which is exactly wot I like to do a late Monday eve.
In what's one of the more widely-loved and acclaimed albums of 2012, Jens Lekman 's latest LP I Know What Love Isn't still quite hasn't reached the levels of success that it rightly deserves, but that doesn't stop him sauntering along with nary a care in the world. Below you can watch his newest video for "Become Someone Else's" , and I Know What Love Isn't is out now. Connect [...]
On his third full-length album, Swedish singer-songwriter Jens Lekman returns with a more simplistic approach, toning down the extremely colorful instrumentation that coated his last LP. Thankfully, the man's charm and wit is all this album needs to stay afloat. WATCH THE REVIEW
Sure you gotta love the JENS LEKMAN 's music as he adds through subtraction in his bittersweet new music video, I KNOW WOT LOVE ISN'T .
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 [...]
Was just thinking this AM I may shave me weave off, and here comes the JENS LEKMAN joining the baldy club with beautiful lead new video, ERICA AMERICA .
I'm not sure if it's just me, but compared to the round of publicity that Jens Lekman did for his last album in 2007 Night Falls Over Kortedala , he's looking like he's aged about 15 years and isn't in the best of health. Maybe it's the hair, maybe it's because he lost a little weight, or maybe I'm just a fucking idiot. Regardless, I'm just happy to have him back, with new music and new videos that ooze with charm, like his simple new one for [...]
Tweet Sweden's Jens Lekman dropped by NPR's famous tiny desk to play a few songs, new and old and not so old, peforming "I Want A Pair Of Cowboy Boots" , "The End Of The World Is Bigger Than Love" , and "Waiting For Kirsten" , and the story about him stalking Kirsten Dunst is priceless.

It’s common knowledge that everyone has a celebrity crush ( Natalie Portman , anyone?), but where we common folk just gawk and drool, some stalkers possess a gift for songwriting. Ben Folds professed his love for american poet Saskia Hamilton on Fallon , and while that was pretty funny, Jens Lekman has just crafted a song that takes the take cake for now. Our friends at TwentyFourBit have reported that the 29-year-old Swedish singer-songwriter took to the poolside at Los Angeles’ swanky Mondrian Hotel where he performed a stripped down version [...]
I saw Jens Lekman in Whelan's about two or three years back, when he was on tour promoting Night Falls Over Kortedela . It was a decent show, but nothing amazing. He was only accompanied by one band member, so hopefully this time he'll have a full backing band. He'll be returning to the Wexford Street venue on Sunday, August 1st. Tickets cost €17.50 and are on sale now. Watch Jens Lekman - 'A Little Lost' live in Whelan's:
