Sondre Lerche
Dan in Real Life
EMI
It’s always a shame when an original soundtrack sinks or floats by virtue of the film it scores. Consider Steve Carell’s Dan in Real Life. Its fanfare came and went quickly, but this new music from Sondre Lerche deserves a closer listen. A less affected but no less charming Danny Michel, Lerche drops lovely acoustic tunes (“My Hands are Shaking”), band numbers (Sondre Lerche and the Faces Down Quartet in “Human Hands”) and duets with Regina Spektor (“Hell No”). Woven throughout are instrumental vignettes. The album joins the soundtracks for Out of Sight and Open Season, as part of a great tradition of almost-forgotten soundtracks.
