Right away we hear potential in this young artist, whose quirky point of view, semi-detached delivery and skilled musicianship combine to make an impression on us.
 For all its faults (vocals mixed a bit low, awkward tempo) “Bookmark” is the work
 of a confident, intelligent singer-songwriter who’s got a wryly humorous sensibility. Our favorite is the song “Psych Ward,” a flippant bit of advice to an unruly acquaintance. Then Levin throws a curveball at you with “Bye For Now” showing that he can veer into a whole different realm complete with an electronic patchwork of otherworldly synthesizers, hip-hop beats and a gaggle of different voices. There’s plenty of talent to develop in this young artist.
