Jens Lekman, You're Beautiful

Jens Lekman may be one of the wittiest, most talented songwriters right now, yet not many people know about him. I stumbled upon this YouTube video of him performing "A Postcard to Nina" with a ukulele (bonus points) after an electrical outage prevented his full band from helping out. Check it out and you'll find genuine nervousness, a beautiful voice and a heart-warming story about his friend, all of which I think anyone can appreciate. And if you haven't heard Jens' latest album, Night Falls Over Kortedala, do so immediately.
