Jens Lekman: “A Postcard to Nina” (2007)

A quote from Spinner says it better than I could:

It’s the oldest romantic story in the world: Boy meets girl. Girl is a lesbian. Boy pretends to be boyfriend of girl to appease girl’s dad.

The Swedish singer-songwriter displays his proficiency with not only English but with both current and retro pop forms with this witty, melancholy and groovy — in both the late-’60s and current senses of the word — tune. And we believe you, Jens: You’re only pretending to be in love with Nina. For her father’s benefit.
