Love Letters & Blackmail

A tribute to all the stressed mailmen who are running around to post tons of Christmas cards! I discovered Jens Lekman more or less by accident. I like ‘Postcard to Nina’, because it’s sad and funny at the same time. He has a new album out, called ‘I know what love isn’t’. All the songs are about heartache and pain, but always with a humorous twist. And I like the new album ‘Bloom’ from Italian singer Andrea Balducci as well. Check out his single ‘Just dropped in’ and listen to his version of 'The letter' (originally from The Box Tops) that I selected for this mailmen tribute! Picture from Perfect Day Dream. Enjoy!
