Sondre Lerche

January 13, 2003

if i were a teenage girl, i wouldn't waste my time on N'Sync or The Backstreet Boys. the real action is with sondre lerche.

at the tender age of 19, this norwegian wonder puts all the manufactured teeny bopper pop stars to shame. faces down is filled with jangly, tingly melodies that remind me a little of stephen malkmus, jon brion and michael penn. his music also been compared to aztec camera, with good reason. lead singer roddy frame was only 16 when oblivious came out. (but don't quote me on that. i know he was young.)

and just look at him, girls. try to tell me he's not more crushworthy than justin timberlake. just you try.
