Manhattanâ€™s Lower East Side probably doesnâ€™t smell as good as Manchesterâ€™s hipper hipster enclaves — or anywhere else, for that matter — but the sounds coming out of the gentrified tenements these days are enough to make you forget about that whole art-rock-as-next-big-thing debacle. Case in point: Levy, named for its post-modern crooner of a lead singer, paints NYC in an appealing shade of Mancunian gray, waxing chippy to melancholy on relationships that werenâ€™t built to last. As with that one-named icon who helped put Manchester on the map, Levy sounds best when Matt Siskinâ€™s guitar propels the songs into the atmosphere. Put on your iPod and let Levy bounce around inside your head for a while.
