The Swedish indie-pop truth-teller Jens Lekman has been quiet in the game for altogether too long, and now he’s finally just about ready to release his new EP An Argument With Myself, his follow-up to the 2007 album Night Falls On Kortedala. We’ve already posted the title track, and now the entire EP is streaming over at Soundcloud. (UPDATE: It is now also streaming below.)
The EP is as warm, thoughtful, and lushly orchestrated as anything you’d hope Lekman would come out with, and “Waiting For Kirsten,” his song about quasi-stalking Kirsten Dunst during a Gothenburg music festival when she was filming Melancholia last summer, just kills me. Lekman certainly doesn’t sound like someone who’s been off the scene for the past four years. What do you guys think? Mull it over with a download of the title track, if you missed it last time:
