Jens Lekman is one of the cleverest songwriters of modern times and should be far more popular than he is.

I first saw Jens perform in Berlin in 2006 where he opened with the cheekily inappropriate track We’re All Going To Die and have been a fan ever since, even though I’m still alive. If you get the chance to see him on his October 2011 tour of the US and Europe, do so.
