WTSR New Noise: LVL UP

WTSR New NoiseThis week, WTSR Assistant Music Director Nelson Kelly highlights one of the best new albums that the College’s own radio station, 91.3 FM WTSR, puts into its weekly rotation.

Band: LVL UP
Album: “Return to Love”
Release Number: 4th
Hailing From: Purchase, N.Y.
Genre: Alternative Lo-fi Indie Rock

The bad boys of New York are back with the band’s fourth release, “Return to Love.” This time, LVL UP trades jangly riffs for epic walls of sound. There are still plenty of poppy indie lo-fi jams on this album, though there are several longer musical interludes that will knock you on your butt. Overall, LVL UP’s sound has matured greatly, as this is the most cohesive release the boys have put out yet. “Return to Love” was good stuff from a great local band and I can’t wait to hear what these dudes put out in the future.

Must Hear: “She Sustains Us,” “Spirit Was,” “Pain” and “The Closing Door”
