I think I first got turned onto Jens music via Swedes Please. Another fine example of an artist whose music I may not have heard if it was not for some of great music blogs out there. Jens morphs from bombastic pop star to Nick Drake-like folkie with ease, mastering both. Listen to this recent NPR interview with the songwriter: Jens Lekman: Idiosyncratic Pop from Sweden.
Jens Secretly Canadian website has many, many Jens early demos and Internet-only tracks. Visit their site as I have only posted a handful below.
