Jens Lekman, “Sipping On Sweet Nectar”

Opening with the offbeat twinkling of horns and samples, it took me a few seconds into “Sipping on Sweet Nectar” before I realized that I was watching a music video and not a short film that just happens to have music.

Which is not to say the visuals have anything in particular, beyond impressionism, to do with the song.

“Last night I ran into my old life/Still waiting for someone at the station/Someone who never made it into my new life/So I called up Lisa/Cause she’s my only friend . . .”
