(Neptune) The Swedes do many things right, among them gummy fish and witty pop music. Swedish pop chap Jens Lekman is lovely, and his lyrics make me laugh. They contain such concrete, pedestrian references and words and then, when they've set a scene that looks like your recognizable everyday life, he punches you in the solar plexus with sadness and wonder and confusion and existential angst. I could listen to him sing words like "avocado" and "vending machine" and "eyebrow" and "asthma inhaler" for so many hours, all whispery and sweet. Taken by Trees is his Secretly Canadian labelmate, fellow Swede, and former frontwoman of the Concretes, Victoria Bergsman.
