Album Review: Leviethan, Everything is Fine

Levi Cecil's new CD, 'Everything Is Fine' is an easy listen for hanging out at home on a rainy day or just winding down. He has a soft, calming voice and his music isn't overly complicated. There are no hidden meanings, or lyrics you can't understand. I was listening and I got the feeling that he wasn't trying to prove anything to anyone. This music was created only for the love of creating music.

Some of the songs are slow enough for you to feel a bit lethargic, like the track "I'll Be Waiting In The Sound". There are other songs that have some synth, it doesn't sound like it was pre-made, but homemade and tweaked just enough so it has it's own sound. There was some nicely played acoustic guitar and accordion (or concertina?), that also added to the unique sound of Cecil's CD. I really can't think of anything to compare it to, except maybe a soft rock artist who has a concertina and they wanted to sneak onto the record.

Personally, I can't wait to hear it live. It's going to sound amazing! It's a pretty mellow CD, something you'd listen to as you read or if you are stuck at home one grey, cold fall day. By the end of the CD, it felt like you've just woken up from a pleasant dream you can't wait to go back to. OR, you are so relaxed and in love with the world you are in a daze the rest of the day.

If you get the chance, check out Levi Cecil's 'Everything Is Fine'. It is definitely worth your time to listen to.
