‘I Know What Love Isn’t’ (Secretly Canadian)
Recommended TrackShe Just Don't Want To Be With You
Swedish pop chap Jens Lekman set the bar for romance pretty high when he declared “I would never kiss anyone who doesn’t burn me like the sun.” Five years later, on album number three, his love life has taken a turn for the miserable. As the title makes pretty clear, this is a break up record, weeping with Magnetic Fieldsy candid cynicism about love. It’s impossible to resist the perfect misery of ‘She Just Don’t Want To Be With You’, but make it to closer ‘Every Little Hair Knows Your Name’ and you’ll want to give Jens, and yourself, a really big hug.
