Jens Lekman – Wedding In Finistère

Jens Lekman is a man of quality, rather than quantity. Last month he released only his fourth album since his debut in 2004. The album Life Will See You Now is colourful and poppy. It features a song sung by Tracey Thorn (of Everything But The Girl fame) and two with American born Swedish singer LouLou Mamotte. One of those two is current single Evening Prayer, with a rather absurd text that you should really check for yourself.

Today, I present you with my favourite album track: Wedding In Finistère. Its Caribbean vibe and horn section are lovely, and the chorus is so full of words, that I’m curious how (if at all) Lekman could breathe while singing it. Even only listening to it will leave you breathless…
