Jens Lekman

Venue: Main House

Dates: 20 September 2012

Price(s): £ 17.50

+ Support from BROUS. Presented by Bird On The Wire.


Jens Lekman's new album I Know What Love Isn't came out of a break up, something Jens didn't see as worth writing about at first. The songs began more fleeting than the last go around, on his 2007 album Night Falls Over Kortedala. They began building from images and memories and soon took their own route, one that Lekman wasn't privy to their destination.

Musically, from the vast palette he created for Kortedala, he's only chosen a few sombre colors this time. There are strings but not a string section, an upright piano and not a grand, a single saxophone and gracenotes from a flute. The songs are lighter, almost aerodynamic.

What we have is essentially a collection of songs that grew to a story that had to be told. A story that is not new, but essentially human. The story of the grey areas of love that you have to excavate and explore, using the method of exclusion, to find out what love is.!!.
