A yen for Jens Lekman, at Union Transfer on Thursday

The other day I interviewed Swedish songsmith Jens Lekman on the phone. He was in Bloomington, Indiana, I was sitting in my car, parked on Rittenhouse Square outside the Ethical Society, where he played last October. (It's a long story.)

The story that resulted from that conversation ran in the Philadelphia Inquirer on Tuesday and is online here. Last month, Lekman released his typically clever and crafty, and a-little-more-serious-than-usual third full length album I Know What Love Isn't, on the Secretly Canadian label.  Last night, Lekman performed the title track on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Watch that here.

On Thursday, Lekman plays Union Transfer, with Taken By Trees opening. Show details are here. The video for the new album's "Erica America" is below.
