Jens Lekman at Mohawk

November 14, 2012

Jens Lekman is a Swedish musician, renowned for his quirky, witty lyrics. His command of English is impeccable, and it's not even his first language.

I've been a fan of Lekman since becoming hooked on his song Black Cab years and years and years ago (it's still featured in my regular playlists to this day, in fact). However, I'd never seen him perform before and I wasn't actually sure what to expect from his live show. I certainly was not disappointed. Choosing to play his most recent album in its entirety before dedicating the second half of his set to some classics from his back catalog, Lekman has an effortless, affable kind of charm that wins the audience over in no time at all. I can't imagine anyone left this show feeling anything other than all warm and fuzzy inside.
