Jens Lekman, Taken By Trees

When: Mon., Oct. 15, 8 p.m. 2012

Both Jonathan Richman-like chamber rock savant Jens Lekman and Taken By Trees, the folk-fusion project of Victoria Bergsman, confound the expectations of the singer-songwriter tag. Appropriately, they appeared on a tribute to Arthur Russell, the "Buddhist bubblegum" composer, disco guru and troubadour known for knocking down musical borders. Both have also found their sweet, strange songs in commercials—Lekman for washing machines, Bergsman via her old band, the Concretes, for Target. Indeed, they maintain their pleasant pop appeal, no matter how odd the swirl of instruments around their voices might sound. They are proudly and obsequiously ambitious. —Brandon Soderberg
