Jens Lekman - Higher Power
A Romantic with a capital ‘R’, loveable goofball Jens Lekman is an unashamed crooner who masochistically enjoys picking up the tattered remains of his broken relationships, turning them over to examine them, and writing more-bitter-than-sweet, lushly orchestrated indie pop about them. Higher Power is one of his brighter moments however, with Jens’s glorious baritone focussing on those initial dizzy moments of love (assisted by some autoerotic asphyxiation). He also writes great songs about stalking Kirsten Dunst through downtown Gothenburg.
