"I Was Slicing Up An Avocado"

This is Jens. His style reminds me a bit of Neil Hannon's from The Divine Comedy, with subdued Scott Walker-esque vocals, ladykiller vibes, cinematic drama, and sometimes silly lyrics. Here he is doing the same song live ("Your Arms Around Me").

I had tickets to see him back in April, but it happened to be the same day I moved into my new place, and amidst the moving mayhem I plumb forgot. Didn't even think twice about cute Jens until the next day when my coworker bragged about how much he'd enjoyed the show. I would have been more annoyed if I wasn't so busy visualizing the placement of my couch and obsessing over how I was going to get symmetrical holes into the back of my makeshift entertainment center.
