Jens Lekman - Life Will See You Now (Secretly Canadian,2017)

“…he’s made the journey from spindly, insular indiepop to glorious, primary-coloured music, explicitly referencing 80s chart hits, soul, funk and disco. The contrast with Lekman.s mordant lyrics “How I prayed that I could stop the pain / When the pain needed more than ibuprofen,” he sings on “Evening Prayer,” a joyous disco stomper about a tumour makes it, at times, desperately moving.” – The Guardian
