Uploading one musical postcard every week for the duration of 2015 is just the kind of thoughtful and caring thing singer Jens Lekman does.
Even his weekly musings were loaded with hopeful romanticism, melancholy and descriptive tales, indebted to Jonathan Richman and Belle & Sebastian who he cites as his ultimate inspirations. Last year he took up residency for his Ghostwriting LP, taking other people’s stories and filling them out with his wafting melodies. Taking time to embody every word above the light plinking of piano or his guitar strings, it was a magical offering to follow 2012’s I Know What Love Isn’t.
In November, the Swede will return to the capital to bestow his gentle compositions unto Hackney's Oslo.
