NAME: Pop Levi
HOMETOWN: Liverpool, United Kingdom
HOW I HEARD ABOUT THEM: The Backseat Blogger told me I would like them.
LATEST RELEASE: The Return To Form Black Magick Party [Comes out Feb 12, 2007 BUY]
SONG LISTENED TO: “Sugar Assault Me Now” [LISTEN]
WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE: Someone loves T. Rex. That someone is me. And Pop Levi. Fuzzy bassline with glamtastic vocals and psychedelic (and shagadelic) vibe. Great party song–that is if you like to shimmy and shake at parties. You may remember Pop Levi as the bassist of international pop eletronica band Ladytron.
1 to 5 RATING: 4
