SHOUTING OUT LOUD
At home in Sweden, Jens Lekman is accurately referred to as a pop star; in this country, only critics call him that. But love Lekman we do, a cult obsession unlikely to dim with last months release of the singers excellent new EP, An Argument With Myself, which leads with a Paul Simonish title track that absolutely lives up to its premise: Fuck you, Lekman sings over bubbling Afropop guitars, No, youfuck you! This weekend, he caps a brief U.S. tour with a three-night Brooklyn stand sure to be packed with people bearing notebooks. Hyperbole will ensue.
