I’d love to be chummy with Sondre. He’s just that cool. Since he has a new disc coming out next month and it seems as though his new song “Minor Details” has been posted at various other blogs, I thought I’d take it upon myself to familiarize some of you with the rest of his stuff. For those of you that don’t already know, Sondre Lerche is a young Norwegian songwriter who has got a lot to offer up. He’s got this classicism that is infused into each and every one of his songs which will hopefully become apparent to you upon listening. Sondre’s main weapon of choice is his guitar, but the way he has employed the use of horns and keyboard effects (tasteful keyboard effects, mind you) make his second disc Two Way Monologue really worth delving into.
Seriously, the Aquarium Drunkard is such a posting stud. I love that blog. I’m all you blog regulars already know this site, but if you don’t – it’s the place to be. Last week he posted a set Ryan Adams & the Cardinals did for XM Radio. You must have it.

Also, check out Michael over at a PLAGUE of angels in order to grab a couple extra Matt Mays tracks (he was on the alt-country mix…)
