Welcome to a new series being featured on the Levine Lowdown!

Each week, guest author Alex Driscoll will take you through the rounds of music he has subjected himself to for that week.

The structure will go something like this: a summary of songs I have been enjoying over the past week, a few quick reviews of notable releases and a feature article. Without further delay, let’s get stuck in.
