Sweden has more than tulips and windmills!

That’s right…Sweden is also home to my new favorite European pop musician, although I can’t remember having another favorite European pop musician, but that’s beside the point. With hero’s like Jonathan Richman, Lou Reed and Sinatra, Jens Lekman has a sound that is both fresh and classic. Listening to his music, is like hearing a song you forgot you knew and can’t remember why you ever stopped listening to it. I think that this particular track, Your Arms Around Me,  exemplifies the sunny melodies and vinyl-crackling arrangements Lekman has become known for on the indie circuit. Lekman isn’t the most diverse of artists, but his clear love of music makes him a joy to listen to and to love.

LISTEN TO IT!

BUY IT!
