Jens Lekman: “An Argument With Myself”

I’ve always heard that talking to yourself isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s when you start answering your own self-analytic questions out loud that one should start worrying about their own sanity. That said, Jens Lekman might want to seek professional help. But that might stop him from making thoroughly enjoyable, reggae-infused tropical pop songs like “An Argument With Myself.” If only all of our internal struggles could lead to such fun. The lyrics sound like someone’s inner monologue after a breakup, as Lekman dukes it out with numero uno from start to finish on the title track of his forthcoming EP. An Argument With Myself will be the first new material from Lekman since 2007’s Night Falls Over Kortedla, and I hope all five tracks on the new short-player have this same fun, island-rhythm vibe.
