Sondre Lerche claims his latest album, Phantom Punch, is "an Orange Juice meets Fleetwood Mac & My Bloody Valentine meets Gilberto Gil & Os Mutantes meets early Elvis Costello & Prefab Sprout & XTC meets Thomas Dolby meets Steely Dan circa Katy Lied, kind of thing."

Although only 24, the Norwegian-born singer-songwriter seems like a vet. He and his band, The Faces Down, have been playing together for six years and he's already on his fourth release.

Songs performed: "Say It All," "The Tape," and "After All."
