I was first introduced to LVL UP a couple of months ago with their incredible “Nightshade” video, and have been listening to their Space Brothers EP ever since. The SUNY Purchase band takes a heavier approach to the strong influence of 90’s bands such as Built To Spill and Weezer that has been getting more popular lately, and I can’t get enough of it. After a few singles, they have finally put their new 7″ which will be released in a couple of days on Double Double Whammy up for full stream, and so far it is definitely living up to my anticipation. LVL UP once again have combined very strong songwriting with awesome energy and a DIY aesthetic that works perfectly. The 7″ packs 6 short songs into an awesome 10 minutes that show the bands extremely high potential. You can stream one of my favorite tracks off of it below, and the whole thing after the jump, then make sure to buy it on April 6th.
