New news from Jens Lekman is always good news. It’s almost been four years since his grand opus of a record Night Falls Over Kortedala was released. The album was one of my most favorite albums of the year.
The Swedish crooner’s new single “An Argument With Myself” I admit didn’t quite “blow me out of the water.” But the song is still fresh with a tempo that’s much more upbeat than the sad songs and ballads that were on his previous album. And just like previous songs the style meshes all over the place. The new track at times almost has a very Caribbean taste to it. Not exactly Vampire Weekend, but the song is still quite fun and makes me excited to hear the rest of the An Argument With Myself EP. It’s going to be released September 20th, 2011 via Secretly Canadian.
