Band of the Week: Levi Fuller

OK, Levi Fuller’s not a band, he’s a dude. But he plays in the Luna Moth! And sometimes he has a backing band called the Library! And he’s really cool!

Gush Gush Gush. Levi Fuller makes music that all those J.Tillman types should be paying attention too—It’s kind of strange that he’s not yet a KEXP poster-boy, but I suppose he’s still young. And maybe more talented than a lot of the artists they play on that stupid, stupid radio station. They can’t handle the pretty!

His songs are slow and drawn out, with lots of sustained notes. Levi’s voice is slightly nasal in a pleasant, David Byrne-ish way. His newest album, This Murder is a Peaceful Gathering, was released a little more than a year ago. When he says murder, he means group of crows, who seem to be the theme of the album.

Anyhow, check out Levi’s band page, and also check out the fact that he is featured in this week’s Party Crasher (but I didn’t let the cat out of the bag).

Far more imaginative than Grand Archives. Thank gawd!. With a name like Levi Fuller I was expecting some sort of dance hall nonsense.
