Jens Lekman- Live in LA, Singing about Kirsten Dunst

Earlier this week Jens Lekman shared some new material at his show at the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles. Included, and captured in the video above is a new song titled “Waiting for Kirsten” In this song Jens sings of his failed attempts to meet Kirsten Dunst at last year’s Way Out West Festival in his hometown of Gothenborg, Sweden; after she publicly stated that she is a fan. As Jens heads out to a club only to find out later that Dunst was turned away at the door Jens sings “In Gothenburg we don’t have VIP lines/ In Gothenburg we don’t care who you are/ The VIP lines aren’t to clubs/ but to health care, apartments, and jobs.” Jens’ wonderful way of crafting a story is in full effect here, signs of good things to come. You can check out more videos from Jens’ LA performance over at Rawk Blog. Jens Lekman plays two sold out shows in Brooklyn this week, Thursday and Friday at the Green Union Building.

Nightlands Announces First Tour, Releases New Video

Nightlands’ Forget the Mantra started as a simple dream journal where Dave Hartley would record music ideas in the morning, upon waking. It has since blossomed from a mere catalog of thoughts and ideas, a bedroom project in the most literal of senses, into an album that masterfully conveys the feel of dream.

Today, Nightlands shares with us the vision of director Mark Shoneveld of YVYNYL using found footage from the 1970s that conveys a life of simple pleasures, pets, love, music-making, surfing, art, and friendship to create a new video for Nightlands’ “Suzerain (A Letter to the Judge).” We are also very excited to share the news that, in January, Nightlands will be performing live for the first time in select cities on the East Coast and the Midwest.
