Music: Duper Sessions by Sondre Lerche and The Faces Down Quartet

Picture this: A great indie/alt-rock musician, plus a talented jazz quartet. What do you get? A truly incredible and interesting musical experience. Sondre Lerche is most famous for recording the soundtrack from Dan in Real Life, and although we had never heard the Faces Down Quartet before this, we can attest to their talents. This is an awesome album, we heartily recommend it to anyone that likes any kind of music.

"Don't be ridiculous sweet darling,
It's so unlike you to be blue.
You had them the moment you walked in.
Oh, everyone's rooting just for you."
- Everyone's Rooting For You

"You can tell me everything,
I'm old enough to know where you have been.
I couldn't ever fall out of our love.
Fact and fiction look alike when such a lightning strikes,
But I believe that I can face the curse of being in love."
- The Curse of Being in Love

Quick vote: This is one of our all-time favorite cd's! Just when we thought it couldn't get better, and he included a Cole Porter song. Incredible!
