Norwegian singer-songwriter Sondre Lerche earns a lot of Elvis Costello comparisons, because he does guitar pop in a tuneful, brainy way.

Also on the bill is Oberhofer, whose namesake, the super-young Brad Oberhofer, creates one-man bedroom indie pop you'd think was the result of more sophisticated techniques.
