Jens Lekman @ Webster Hall, NYC, 10/27/07

"I am Jens Lekman. You Are New York. Nice to meet you."

Jens Lekman solidified himself as the most sincere human being in music today. Endearing stage banter. Check. Adorable, monochromatically dressed female backing band (plus Viktor Sjoberg). Check. Introducing himself to adoring audience members following the show until an evil security guard evilly intervened and kicked us all out. Double check.

Read Megan's album review of Night Falls Over Kortedala. I'm calling it now: Album. Of. The. Year. Seriously. Like if Stephin Merritt and Belle & Sebastian and Morrissey were actually sincere. And Swedish. But more importantly sincere.

A Postcard to Nina - Jens Lekman
Don't let anyone stand in your way...
