Design of the Week | Jens Lekman's "Life Will See You Now"



Jens Lekman | Radio Waves

Is there anyone sweeter than the sweet, sweet Jens Lekman? The Swedish musician first hit the scene in the early 2000s with his album When I Said I Wanted To Be Your Dog (Secretly Canadian, 2004). His latest album Life Will See You Now just dropped in February. 

I'm beyond stoked to catch Jens perform at the world-renowned Wexner Center in Columbus on Friday night. As always, the Wex pulls in some of the greatest talent from across the globe. I first fell in love with Jens in 2009 when a friend introduced me to his album, Night Falls Over Kortedala (still my favorite album of his). I admit, I'm not always in the mood for some Jens, as his music can come off a bit theatrical and cheesy, but in celebration of his latest release, I revisited his entire discography. In these strange times, Lekman's music has been a breath of fresh air—a quirky, melodic look at the strange beauty that is still present in every day life.

Pitchfork gives Life Will See You Now an 8.0 (which is dang good on their scale), saying that Jens "has never been more skilled at his craft, or had more stories to tell."

Listen to one of my favorite track from the new joint, "Postcard #17"
