Levon VIncent has just thrown his new album up for grabs on WeTransfer, one day before it is to be released on vinyl on his own label Novel Sound. Weird? No, this falls perfectly in line with Levon’s anti-establishment behaviour, like giving talent a once in a lifetime opportunity to live in his home and be financially supported by him while he trains them in their production skill.
Levon already shared parts of his upcoming album back in January, but has now offered the entire album to download for free. He issued the following statement:
“Thanks to the people who gave me my start-my entire nyc family too numerous to mention individually but you know who you are and you know how I feel about you, especially Fred qu Joey Ed Anthony. Ben Klock marcel dettman ND Tama Snax and every single other member of the berghain ostgut Ton world community, phonica and fabric, thanks to the uk for embracing me first. Thank you to Deutschland, Thomas Fern and Hazel, ASCD I wish you the best. Thank you eternally to Martin and rubadub. Thank you to the shops who sustained me while I worked in solitude, five elephant, new deli yoga, Charlie’s and anaveda, geipfelltrakne, the deconstruct yacht club, uzuri Aybee Lerato and Kerstin and Linus, all the partygoers of the world, and all the countries gracious enough to invite me- thank you the most.
And special thank you to anyone I may have forgotten here- I’ll get you next time I promise.
This is music for the ugly ducklings of the world. Music for swans. If you are you’re a member of the rat race, climbing around a dumpster with the other rats vying for power, you may of course listen, but know – this is not music for you. This is action against you.”
