Album Stream: Sondre Lerche - Bootlegs

Music  |  Audio

Norwegian singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche isn’t set to release his first live album, Bootlegs, until Sept. 4, but Paste is offering an advanced stream now.

The album—which was recorded at famed rock venue Hulen in Bergen, Norway and various clubs in Brooklyn, N.Y. during Sondre’s recent tour in support of his 2011 self-titled album—gives the performances an up-close and stripped-down feel.

“I wanted you to be able to hear me and the band this way (mistakes and all) rather than through some glorified live rendition that sounds more like an uninspired studio recording with extended applauses and drums that sound like plastic,” he says. “I wanted you to hear us when we didn’t know you were listening.”
