Pop Levi Never Never Love

Pop Levi performs crass, decadent, counterfeited, empty-calorie pop music that I cannot get out of my head. At first, Never resembles little more than another volume of focus group-driven pop (“Dita Dimoné” is as charming as any High School Musical number ‘bout puppy love). But listen closer and he’s an agile karaoke singer who dresses up as T. Rex for “Semi-Babe” and Power Generation-era Prince on “Everything & Finally.” After awhile, it becomes clear that Levi knows that some of the best pop is indeed tacky and has stitched-on limbs from the corpses of clichés, but it can still bring a speck of cheer to the bitterest of cynics. That’s between you and me.
