Sondre Lerche Covers Animal Collective

Sondre Lerche Covers Animal Collective

Seems like Animal Collective couldn’t keep themselves from topping most every list that came out this Listmas, even that of the Norwegian singer-songwriting Brooklyn transplant Sondre Lerche. Instead of conforming to the consensus pick of “My Girls,” though, Lerche told us his “favorite song of the year” was the swirling Merriweather gem “Bluish.” (See the full list here.) And in honor of it touching him so, Sondre’s memorialized his love for the Collective’s love song by bunkering in a Brooklyn basement — armed with just a guitar, a voice, and an honorary late-breaking splash of weirdo effects — to tape a cover for all to enjoy. It’s going out as a Christmas Eve gift to his mailing list tomorrow, but Mr. Lerche’s kindly sharing it with us now, to help all of us get through this last shopping day. Enjoy.

For some original Lerche, try “Good Luck” and “Heartbeat Radio” from his 2009 release Heartbeat Radio. And may all your Christmases be blui
