Leveret - Action At A Distance

posted by dfbm | Write a Comment

Leveret is a Synth Pop/Art Pop group from Portland, Maine and even if I rarely post stuff like this anymore, I thought it was interesting, because its so diverse. There were so many well known elements in their music that reminded me of something.

It's a really eclectic mix of sounds from 30+ years of synth pop history. For people who translate those sounds into paramaters on synthesizers, this is fun to listen to. Sawtooth waveforms pads, sample and hold, white noise, 8-bit sounds etc. My knowledge got a bit rusty, but I like to hear such prominent synths.

The album reminds me on synth groups like Add N To (X) or Trans Am (Unclothing), early early MGMT (Oscillator), NIN (Wizard), Lenny Kravitz* (Swallow) and much more I can't think about right now. There are a lot of details to discover in their sound design and the mix is really well balanced.

Buy it on bandcamp!
