Lekman combines shimmery Afropop guitar hooks, reggae beats and droll, Morrissey-like delivery in a way that comes off as comic and charming rather than annoying and twee. Twas ever thus: The Swedish singer has been making records since the early aughts, gently tapping into the vein of observational, wry humor championed by the likes of Belle and Sebastian and the Magnetic Fields.
