Jens Lekman starts this one off with a story about why he loves to play house shows. I couldn't agree more with him. The kind of intimacy you experience when you're packed into a tiny room with friends and strangers, mere feet (sometimes inches) from the performer that just can't be replicated on any kind of stage no matter how small. This song is one of my favorite of Lekman's and I was ecstatic that I got to see him play it live in my dining room.

ABOUT THE FILM:
From 2005—2008, Stephan Doitschinoff traveled throughout the Brazilian countryside of Bahia, painting site-specific murals on adobe houses, chapels, and even a cemetery. In the small village of Lençóis, he collaborated with local artisans, and expanded his research into the rich history of Brazilian folklore and the syncretism between Christian theology and African spiritual traditions.
