It would be somewhat simple to trace LVL UP’s roots via the past couple of decades of American alternative music; a dash of Sebadoh here, a dollop of Neutral Milk Hotel there. Such a thing, however, would dilute just how damn good they are on their own terms. 2014’s Hoodwink’d LP introduced the band to an ever-growing fan base, and led to the Brooklyn quartet joining the most established record label families, Sub Pop Records, for the release of last year’s Return To Love LP. Sometimes fierce, always heartening, the band’s dense, sludgy riffs always build themselves up into something wildly anthemic.
