If you haven’t heard LVL UP’s new full-length, Hoodwink’d, make sure that you do — it’s one of my favorite albums of the year, a perfect combination of sparkling production and intricately wound slacker rock. “Big Snow” would slot in nicely on that album, but it shows up on an awesome split with Krill, Ovlov, and Radiator Hospital instead. It’s another winner from the New York quartet, deftly balancing existential crises with winking moments of levity. Listen below.
The split comes out tomorrow via Double Double Whammy/Exploding In Sound. Preorder it here.
