Night Falls Over Kortedala

Today is a great day.

Jens Lekman's latest LP, Night Falls Over Kortedala, is released today by Secretly Canadian. Although it's been out in Sweden for a few weeks already -- and although I've ordered things from Jens before -- today is the first I've heard the full-length. (Thanks, Rhapsody!)

The record is classic Lekman: tender, self-deprecating lyrics, lush strings, horns, layered vocals, and an overall sense of charm and wit. "Oh You're So Silent Jens" is a very special work indeed, but Lekman's latest will not disappoint.

Can't wait to see him in November!
