Earlier this summer, I finally listened to the 2007 Night Falls Over Kortedala by Jens Lekman, an album I've been wanting to listen to for months. And for the last quarter of the summer, Kortedala grew on me quickly and soon found itself on repeat. My timing couldn't have been much better, because shortly after my listening party it was announced that Lekman would be coming out with an EP called An Argument With Myself this year after being silent for about 4 years. The accompanying self-titled single, "An Argument With Myself", was released with the news. The song didn't disappoint at all, sticking to a lot of the same elements that Lekman has used prior. His wordplay is creative and fun; and like usual he tells some kind of off beat story (A Postcard To Nina for example) backed with grandiose and catchy chamber pop. You can check it out below, and keep an eye out for the EP comin' to the United States on September 20th.
