Review by John Noyd
February 2010

A precocious throwback, Lerche’s augmented charms and contrapuntal cuteness are muted by silver spoon cool and Rat Pack panache addressing fleeting moments, effervescent examinations of ordinary life. Choirboy voices among driving beats, dabbling dalliances between calculated swagger; “Heartbeat,” blasts hip sophistication sparkling with catchy hooks and restless intelligence. Swinging in charismatic happiness, Lerche dances around in unrestrained jazz-pop spotlights wrought with casual brilliance and wrapped in polished flourishes. Covered in cavalier brass and nimble strings courtesy of High Llama’s Sean O’Hagan, “Heartbeat,” gently bend genres, tweaking cheeky melodies into spectacular galas, combining swirling night club lounge wizardry and rockin’ music hall savoir faire. The starry-eyed wunderkind plays Madison’s Frequency February 20th and Milwaukee’s Shank Hall the 21st, don’t miss astute and subdued troubadour JMB opening.
