Jens Lekman - Oh you're so silent Jens

More little things from Scandinavia that seem from out of this world, this time coming from Sweden.
With delicate melodies, fantastic lyrics and a sublime use of instruments, this album is too beautiful to put in words. Simple, almost naïve, not taking himself too seriously, yet nearing perfection. One of those cult releases which you don't listen too much, because each time you do, it becomes an unique moment. Who else could rhyme "vending machine" with "wedding ring"?

If you want to know more about Jens, check out his "diaries" here. You won't regret it.
