Sondre Lerche – “Domino” (Stereogum Premiere)

Sondre Lerche is prepping the followup to 2009’s Heartbeat Radio. The sometime-Brooklynite (he was here for the ‘Gum Bowl last year) embraces his adopted home a little bit more on his upcoming self-titled LP. He recorded his album at Greenpoint, Brooklyn’s omnipresent Rare Book Room studio (here’s a list of some of who’s recorded there recently, the list includes Dirty Projectors, Animal Collective, Small Black, etc). The album, recorded and mixed by RBR’s Nicolas Vernhes (with longtime producer Kato Ådland) was recorded mostly to tape and then mixed within three weeks. “Domino” reflects that; it’s coarse-grained without feeling rushed. There’s nice details too, like the heartbeat thump on the break between Lerche’s choruses. Listen:
