8: Jens Lekman - Oh You're So Silent Jens

Jens Lekman is crazy. That fits right in with most of the music that I enjoy. As the music descends from the speakers into your ear canal you begin to wonder what caused you to purchase this wacko in the first place. Yeah, his lyrics transcend all normalcy and they definitely make a smirk crawl over your lips, but is that really enough for you to believe in? Then you listen again...and again...and again and then you begin to recognize his sound coming for you, and the moment you here it you tell yourself, "Yeah, that's a cool song." He's a pop musician from the other side of pop, the dark shadowy side that doesn't quite fit into any sensibility. That's okay, because that's the way that I like to think about myself. Why fit into the norm?

Besides, the song "Black Cab" is the coolest song we've heard all year.
