About this album

June 2004
ARTIST: Sondre Lerch
TITLE: Two Way Monologue
RECORD LABEL: Astralwerks
REVIEW BY: Michael Delgado

Two Way Monologue is the sophomore LP from Norwegian indie-rocker Sondre Lerche. Barely old enough to drink, it’s strange to notice every song sounds like he plucked it straight from the past. From one of those old movies or the carefree times they were made in. Although each song is primarily an acoustic, solo showcase of Sondre’s strumming and lilting vocals, ala Jeff Buckley, or even Louis Armstrong (particularly on “Wet Ground”), there’s still a lot more going on. Sounds ranging from strings, keys, and backing vocals to electronic bloops that sound like alien ships on twilight zone or the bridge of old star trek episodes, prove that he’s doing something different. Strangely, it still seems there’s not much to it. The old lounge sound feels slightly repetitive and monotone, leaving you asking, why not listen to the old favorites?

    I only bought this album because Sondre is so damn fine. I'm glad I did, it's good.

    I always had a sneaking suspicion this dude didn't speak much English. But you can't deny the tasty organ licks on here...
