Up until his just-released fourth LP, Life Will See You Now, Swedish musician Jens Lekman wrote guitar-driven pop songs with heavily orchestrated arrangements of strings, horns, and backing chorales, the results cheesy yet endearing. A big part of his charm lies in his adorably accented phrasing, silky, low-toned vocals, clever yet vaguely forlorn diaristic lyrical turns and storytelling that often spells out just what he means, and the occasional misinterpreted moments (“She said that we were make believe / But I thought she said maple leaves”). Lekman told Entertainment Weekly that he was learning about drum machines and electronic instruments while making Life Will See You Now. This is not necessarily a good thing, and it only bears a passing resemblance to my favorite Lekman music. Let’s hope the live performance will be a different story. LEILANI POLK
