Idiosyncratic, Swedish pop auteur, Jens Lekman, blogs. It's a primitive blog called "smalltalk." There are no comments and it doesn't appear to use pHp or WordPress or MovableType or any observable CMS like that. It appears to be a straightforward, HTML page that he restarts each year. His posts are infrequent and semi-poetic, in a simple, straight-forward way. Much like his music releases. Anyway, as much as I love the blog, it has no RSS feed to subscribe to or mailing list or anything like that, so I tend to catch up on it every few months.
This past weekend, I sat down to catch up on the last few months of Jens' blogging and here's what I found out:
1. Jens Lekman can sing in Spanish.
2. There were these awesome Latino, ex-gang-member oldies-pop group in the Bronx in the 1970s called "Street The Beat"
Street The Beat - "Falling in Love"
Street The Beat - "Crazy Boy"
3. Jens Lekman can do a great Kraftwerk impersonation:
Oh, you're so awesome, Jens...
