We are thrilled to share that the Albumism family is growing once again with the very welcome addition of Jeremy Levine. Jeremy approaches his writing about music with candor, clarity and passion, all qualities that our staff values greatly. We encourage the Albumism community to stay tuned for much more from Jeremy, and in the meantime, check out his debut Albumism article, a tribute to The Killers’ debut album Hot Fuss (2004) in conjunction with its 15th anniversary, as well as his review of Bruce Springsteen’s new album Western Stars.
“I love writing about music, but I especially love writing about music as art, not necessarily music as news, or even music for the sake of criticism,” Jeremy explains. “I want to write about what music means for real people, and to me, the album is the most human-centered form that music takes. We build relationships with albums—that’s what I want to write about!”
More about Jeremy:
Jeremy Levine is a writer, music fan, and musician who lives in Northampton, Massachusetts. During the academic year, he is a graduate student studying Rhetoric and Composition at UMass Amherst, and he spends his summers working at a summer camp in the Berkshires. He grew up playing the upright bass in school and has used that instrument to branch out into the classical, jazz, rock, and jam worlds, but he also loves folk, indie, and anything that was big in the 2000s. He firmly believes that there is a best time of day and time of year for every album. Follow Jeremy on Twitter via @TweetsLevine.
