With a mystical, dance backdrop, Ferencz crafts a mesmerizing fantasy world. That playful/serious hybrid is one which gains additional traction as the long-form poetry comes into meaningful focus.

It's the end of LVL UP, band shares final song and tour dates

LVL UP, a longtime hallmark of the New York indie rock scene, announced earlier this week that the members would be retiring the project. In a statement shared on social media they referred to the band as “an extremely rewarding journey beyond anything we could have ever realistically imagined.” In the post, LVL UP shared a final single, “Orchard,” and farewell tour dates that will have the band travelling from coast to coast for one month. All of the members have other projects including guitarist Mike Caridi’s The Glow, bassist Nick Corbo’s Spirit Was, and guitarist Dave Benton’s Trace Mountains which features drummer Greg Rutkin—Rutkin also played in Cende, another indie rock favorite that recently called it quits. LVL UP will play a final show at Bowery Ballroom on September 28. – Cameron Carr
