What do you think about him? He has definently been listening to Since I Left You a lot. I love the way he uses the same sample as in Extra Kings :)

Pretty cool bloke from what I can tell. He's apparently touring out here for the Laneway Festival in March 2008 so might even get a chance to see him.

Don't know about the Avs influence but my personal fave track is Sweet Summer's Night On Hammer Hill.

his new album is fantastic - brilliant pop melodies with a wry sense of humour :)

i've always been a bit mystified by the avalanches comparisons - i know his song maple leaf always gets held up as an example - but i don't really see it myself. sure he uses a lot of samples in his songs but they're much more pop based than say the av's mainly instrumental tracks. plus he sings on all his songs too.

fave tracks of the new album are many indeed but check out opposite of hallelujah, a postcard to nina, shirin or your arms around me for starters

Yes, same guy.

The last album has a lot of samlpes used in SILY.

Acctualy I read an interview with him where he mentioned that since everybody always compares him with Morrisey and so on, people dont see how much he gets influenced by the avs..

the whole production is really similar to the avs. Releases like this stops me from thinking about the avs follow-up. First it was "Tunder, Lightning Strikes" and now its the new Jens Lekman album


The new Go! Team album is really bad by the way :(
