Jens Lekman + Geoffrey O'Connor

Time Out says

The title track from Swedish songman Jens Lekman’s EP An Argument With Myself has the Swedish songman crooning, “Stop hitting yourself / no, you stop hitting yourself,” which earns him brownie points already (there are far too few songs that reference sibling taunts). But it also 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, and this new release for Secretly Canadian is his perkiest yet. Go. Enjoy.
