Neaoooo. Well, I'm one to talk. I just started listening to him yesterday. After he played in Philly on Friday. I suck.

I saw him tonight at Easy Street Records in Seattle. It was a nice little show. He told some amusing stories and played a couple good songs. I wasn't completely entranced though. A lot of his songs sort of sound the same in that slow, quiet, pretty voice sort of way. It was like Sufjan Stevens without all of the good instrumentation and hauntingly beautiful lyrics. He did a version of Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al" that I really liked, though, but he refused to do the chorus which as we all know is the best part.

Are his albums mostly just acoustic guitar or does he utilize more instruments and vocalists? I've never heard anything but what I heard tonight.

Definitely a full band, brass and all. That's part of why I love it. I am a walking hard-on for horn sections, basically.

Oh good. Maybe I'll devise some way to listen to his music at some point.

I'm sending you his latest cd (the only one I have at the moment) in pieces via gmail. Let me know if it doesn't work or if you switched emails. (I'm currently having trouble on my end, I'll tell you when it goes through.)

Thanks Sarah! I was pleasantly surprised to see all of those emails. I'll let you know if they work or not.

They work!

Thanks again. Even just listening to little bits of the songs as I download and open them, I already like them better.

No problem! Just want to share the Jens Lekman love =)

I'm planning on getting an older one - You're So Silent Jens - from my friend pretty soon, so if you like this album let me know and I'll send the next your way when I get it.

This also goes for anyone on the board. If you like any of the bands/artists that I talk about in this forum and you want a couple songs or an album, I will be happy to email it on over.
