Sondre Lerche in Montreal

Jenn Wong's favourite Norwegian songster (and now Brooklyn transplant) Sondre Lerche (even more than Kurt Foss!) is in Montreal tonight along with his rollicking songs for a solo electric performance at Cafe Campus. I assume he'll be mostly playing songs from his new album Heartbeat Radio, but I'd like to hear personal favourites Sleep on Needles & On The Tower. Requests, respectfully. The song above is from the first on his new album, and doesn't the trailing guitar line and accompanying crescendos remind you of Destroyer? No? The near-overwhelming string arrangements were provided by Sean O'Hagan of The High Llamas.
