LVL UP – “Ski Vacation”

The release of LVL’s sophomore LP Hoodwink’d is imminent, and they’ve just heightened the anticipation considerably with the release of “Ski Vacation.” It’s jangly, propulsive blast of brightly melancholic guitar-pop that reminds me of Beat Happening covering a Go Betweens song. The way those chiming guitar leads dance with the octave-spanning boy-girl vocals is seriously so wonderful, so listen to it now.

Hoodwink’d is out 9/23 on Double Double Whammy/Exploding In Sound. Pre-order it here.
