The 10 Best Jens Lekman Songs

The appeal of Swedish singer-songwriter Jens Lekman has often been described in terms of his apparent lack of appeal. His signature baritone is slightly nasal and far from classically accomplished, and his arrangements borrow recklessly from 20th century pop — both canonized and disreputable. In any given Jens Lekman song, you’re as likely to hear the influence of the classy baroque pop of Belle & Sebastian as you are the tacky glitz of rhinestone-era Glen Campbell. (On 2005′s Oh You’re So Silent Jens, Lekman samples both of them.)
