Faye Webster – Flowers (feat. Father)
It has been a banner year for serpentwithfeet. soil, his debut album on Secretly Canadian and Tri Angle Records, received rave reviews and is sure to take out prominent spots on many year-end lists. To cap off an excellent 2018, serpentwithfeet shares soil reprise featuring acoustic versions of “bless ur heart” and “messy.” These stripped back versions highlight the intimacy of serpentwithfeet’s songwriting and his ability to make listeners feel a deep personal connection to him.
Both songs explore the topics of uncertainty. On “bless ur heart,” serpentwithfeet fears that his new love will be disfavored by the people around him. While on “messy,” he mocks himself for being a difficult lover, but also questions why his man sticks around if he is truly insufferable. soil reprise blissfully delivers intimate interpretations of two powerful songs.

After completing his previous projects Postcards and Ghostwriting , Jens Lekman came up with a new idea. He asked fellow Swedish songwriter Annika Norlin (Hello Saferide, Säkert!) to join him. The idea was that throughout the year of 2018, the two of them would correspond through music.
