MP3 OF THE WEEK: Jens Lekman – Friday Night At The Drive-In Bingo mp3

“I want the people in the country to be open and kind, but most times they met us with a narrow mind, with the big black dog to bite your behind, if they ever find out you’re not one of their kind”

Jens Lekman is a name I was familiar with and his music less so, but from the sound of this little gem, I been missing out big time. It’s like the best thing that Belle & Sebastian ever sang backed with what sounds like Acker Bilk covering the classic Bond theme ‘All Time High’. Sweetly rose-tinted lyrics describe a city dweller dreaming of living the romantic country life. The release of Jens’ new album ‘Night Falls Over Kortedala’ is imminent and it’s definitely one I’m gonna have to pick up.
