Jens Lekman – Pocketful of Money


Today this is my favourite song…

Jens Lekman was born in Angered, Sweden, which is interesting.

Thanks to Phil for introducing me to ‘Pocketful of money’, which is my favourite off his new album [ Night Falls Over Kortedala (Service Records, 5 September 2007; Secretly Canadian, 9 October 2007) ].

In it he samples Beat Happening. One of the best uses of a sample I’ve ever heard. See what you think.
