Swine Flu Conquers Sweden (Get Well Soon, Jens Lekman!)


During his South American tour, oh-so-adorable Swedish Indie-popper Jens Lekman contracted the H1N1 virus (aka SWINE FLU!). According to his blog, Jens is resting up in quarantine and viewing summer comfortably from his bedside window. In the meantime, we’ve prepared a Get Well card (who knew Swine Flu was an anagram for so much awesome Swedish stuff?!) to help Jens accentuate the positive on his road to recovery.

Swedish Chicks. We know you said, “I’m Leaving You Because I Don’t Love You.” But c’mon, these are keepers.

Water, sweet water that you can sip on. And by water, we mean some grade A Swedish drank.

Iron Shield. This is for those overprotective mamas who, if you come near their kids, might “stab you with this plastic fork.” Iron beats plastic any day, any time.

New Loop Pedals!! Just think about how many Paul Simon covers you can do with the DigiTech JamMan. What’s that? Swine Flu is the second best thing that’s ever happened to you? We thought so.

Eggplant. It’s nutritious and delicious, and, most importantly, doesn’t carry the H1N1 virus!

Fun games. We can’t take you to “Friday Night at the Drive-In Bingo” (you’ll scare the grannies). But we can bring you Clue. And Jenga.

Link to Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” Review. Oh stop it Jens, don’t be modest, you know like that 9.0

Ultimate cough drops. Seriously, get well soon, Jens.
