iTunes Review

Similar to Beach Boy Brian Wilson, chamber-pop savant Levek (a.k.a. David Levesque) has cited the scores of classic Disney animation to be one of his main influences. Levesque started as an Orlando, Fla., elementary school bus driver by day and cloistered home-recording shut-in by night; now he has a spectacular 2012 debut album recorded with a 15-piece ensemble. “Black Mold Grow” opens, with sunflared harmonies that recall David Crosby and Graham Nash harmonizing over a psychedelic backdrop, with ingenious sampling and a hard-grooving bass line. “Canterbury Bell” follows with the beautiful melancholy of Simon & Garfunkel’s “April Come She Will” before “Terra Treasures” re-creates the kind of '60s tropical bossa nova that Sergio Mendes & Brazil 66 specialized in. “Muscat Mingle” shifts gears into a driving instrumental strapped with an arsenal of trippy textures and sounds that seem haunted by The Olivia Tremor Control’s late, great Bill Doss. Levek’s feather-light voice simmers down to a barely audible whisper on “St. Francis,” another collage of lysergic plunderphonic sounds that echo the Elephant 6 Orchestra.

Customer Reviews

Glad I came across this...

David Levesque aka "Levek" does some cool stuff. Electronic, Bossa, Vibey-stuff! Great record for sure, I like "Black Mold Grow" and "French Lessons"

Dreamy, artful music

This is an ethreal album. Leaves you with a good feeling. Happened upon this. Really diggin' it. Reminds me of a wonderful, buzz-filled evening/afternoon near the water, preferably an ocean.

Influences Abound

Obviously you can hear the Simon and Garfunkle/Sergio Mendes influences. I can also hear newer influences like Bibio and Stereolab. Great album.

Levek is the moniker of Florida musician David Levesque's solo project. Levesque worked by day as an elementary school bus driver and retreated into a world of home recording by night. Beginning the band in Orlando, Florida in 2009, Levek first appeared in the form of a nine-song demo posted online. The songs were quickly celebrated by several tastemaking blogs for their insular beauty, and bore similarities to the dreamier moments of orchestral indie-folk mavens like Grizzly Bear, Devendra Banhart,...
