Jens Lekman is set to release his latest album, Night Falls Over Kortedala, early this October. It's another set of melancholy pop tunes featuring the humour and wit Lekman has become known for. The lush instrumentation and romantic songwriting of Jens just makes the music downright nice, for lack of a more fitting term. Kortedala seems to use stronger live intrumentation over his other major North American release, 2005's Oh You're So Silent Jens, which based itself largely on Jens' guitar playing and heavier use of audio samples. Check these songs.
