"I see myself on my death bed saying I wish I would have loved less..."

Here's an instance where a song outshines its video, but oh what a song. "Sipping on Sweet Nectar" is pure swedish pop perfection. Us American fans have less than a week to wait for the release of Night Falls Over Kortedala. Jens Lekman's new album is probably his most cohesive and consistent yet - just song after song of unrequited longing and mentally re-lived memories soundtracked by blaring brass, swirling strings and retro samples. If you haven't already circled October 9th with a big heart on your calendars, tsk, tsk.
