Jens Lekman danced and bopped the night away at The Independent last week, performing with his strong all-woman band in a sold-out show. Lekman conveys a sensitive, sharp lyrical craft, weaving stories of everyday life, both comical and poignant, through infectious melodies.

If you’ve yet to hear any of Lekman’s creations, check out “The Opposite to Hallelulah” and “A Postcard to Nina” from the album Night Falls Over Kortedala and his latest excellent offerings “How We Met, The Long Way,” “How Can I Tell Him,” and “Postcard #7,” from his fresh album Life Will See You Now.
