If there's a talented singer-songwriter who's lucky (or good) enough to get worldwide exposure at a young age, it's almost a given that they'll squander their initial goodwill, but Sondre Lerche has sidestepped the usual pitfalls with hard work. Lerche's seventh album is out now, and though he's tried on and discarded a number of sounds, he remains ever tasteful and polite, making the kind of music you can bring home to Mom. He's easy to like (maybe even love), and while his lack of sudden gestures may not grow his fan base by bounds, it will keep the ones he has very happy. With Nightlands and Kishi Bashi. 18+.
