Jens Lekman – “Postcard #3”
Jens Lekman is apparently serious about his plan to write, record, and post a new song every week for the next year, and if they keep turning out the way they’ve been turning out, that’s a great thing. We’ll keep posting them for as long as they keep ruling. We’ve posted the first two songs in the series, and the latest, which just went up online, is a lovely lilting indie-pop ditty with some serious Graceland echoes to it. Lyrically, it’s about two Australians who, for some reason, decided to get married in northern Sweden, and who convinced Lekman to play at their wedding. He pulls profundity from that unlikely setup because puling profundity from unlikely setups is what Jens Lekman does. Download the song below.
