It’s worth keeping track of Jens Lekman’s current tour schedule and where he’ll stop in to do a session between shows since he keeps sprinkling them with new songs, and of course they’re all gems. The Point of Everything points out that his latest session took place at London’s Maida Vale studios, where he performed a three song set including a new song called “I Don’t Know What To Do With This Information.” The song is a wintry affair, referencing Christmas and snow, and those things seem to mirror the mood of the song which is downbeat and lonely. And beautiful of course.
You can check out “I Don’t Know What To Do With This Information” below, and head to The Point Of Everything to hear the other two songs, “Waiting For Kirsten” and the previously premiered new song “I Want A Pair Of Cowboy Boots.”

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
