The 17th of February, Jens Lekman released his new record “Life Will See You Now”. It has been getting lots of attention since it’s his first album to be released after 2012’s “I Know What Love Isn’t. I’ve already some people call it ALBUM OF THE YEAR. But does the record itself come to the levels of the hype? Let’s find out.
Before I start, I want to say that this will be my first Jens Lekman album ever. It seems like he already had some kind of fanbase, so he can’t be that bad, right? Also found out that he’s Swedish, so that’s cool too.
Now, this record must be one of the comfiest things that I’ve heard so far. Will he get mad at me if I say that his music reminds me a lot of Belle & Sebastian would meet some kind of batshit dance party band? It’s just fun all around, the whole time.
