| You might have noticed that the almighty Jens ”not Lehmann” Lekman is currently touring these shores, he's supporting the pretty good Josh Rouse but also doing the odd solo show:
4 December - Nottingham - Rescue Rooms (w/ Josh Rouse)
5 December - Bristol Academy (w/ Josh Rouse)
7 December - Oxford Academy (w/ Josh Rouse)
8 December - Brighton - Concorde 2 (w/ Josh Rouse)
9 December - London - Shepherd Bush Empire (w/ Josh Rouse)
11 December - London - The Luminaire
12 December - Dublin – Whelans
I haven’t got a ticket for his Luminaire show (alas!), and since it's sold out I’m going to try and see him before he plays with Josh Rouse next Sunday. I've got to see the man!!!
Lekman’s usually splendid live, and he’s one of the few artists that I can’t see too many times.
Below you can get a couple of his tracks, one of the strongest songs from his last album, “Night falls over Kortedala” (one of the best albums of 2007, which you of course know) and a Swedish version of “Maple Leaves” (released on a US tour EP in 2005).
