    I'd say Jens Lekman is an INFP. He's pretty quiet and soft spoken, writes a lot about love, and says he's going to retire after making two albums but comes back to make a third.

    Haha! I know most of this list but I'm not sure how to tell a songwriter's type based solely on their music. I'd have to see them do interviews to more accurately judge. How do you tell what their type is?

    Destroyer is Daniel Bejar's main band. They made my favorite album of this decade (Rubies). (But shhhh....I'm not supposed to say that yet! I still need to write about that in my blog).

    You have him under INFJ. That feels right on instinct but I can't be sure.

    yeah, i just called him by moniker accidentally. what's neko case? and the other guy?

    i just go based on the feeling i get, the lyrics if i've read them, interviews, stereotypes, etc. most of these are sketches that need to be edged, colored, shaded, etc. now some of them i KNOW like jonathan richman. the song closer couldn't be more Fe, nor could it be more hilarious and perfect!

    kevin barnes of of montreal is 100% infj too. i realized when listening to his record that i think jason schwartzman is also an infj. as am i. i feel so coterminous with all of this.

    Neko Case kinda seems like an INTJ. She has that haughty/sophisticated air that they seem to have. And her lyrics are very cerebral I think.....or they just feel emotional at a distance.

    Carl Newman....hmmm...I don't really know. He holds together the New Pornographers, so maybe he is a personable leading type like ENFJ or something. His actual music seems to suggest that. Carefully constructed to have a good time....jagged pop hooks galore...

    I second these. Have you seen McLachlan's ad on TV for the humane society? (I think it was that, it was for some kind of save the animals campaign.)

    Thom Yorke's on-stage antics seem like a sped-up version of Michael Stipe's. The two are fairly similar; infj/infp seems reasonable...
