Tim Levinson #1 Album debut, awards and reviews

Posted on 22 Oct 2012

A huge week for Tim Levinson in Australia is capped off with a number 1 album debut!

Tim Levinson (aka Urthboy) album Smokey’s Haunt debuted this week #1 on the AIR (Australian Independent Chart) Album Chart and #14 on the ARIA Album Chart and is the #1 ARIA Urban Album.  It follows a week as "feature album" on the National Broadcaster Triple J and numerous strong album reviews from leading Australian journalists which continue to flow in. 

The Australian Review - 5 Star - 'But Levinson goes way further than just his own journey, which is part of why he is so significant on the Australian cultural landscape'

SMH - 'What an excellent album Levinson has made'

Triple J Magazine - 'Meaningful rhymes and impressive beats, Smokey's Haunt is a winner'

Alternative Media Group - 'Catchy, humourous and teeming with clever lyrics' 

Last week Tim’s label Elefant tracks was awarded the Best Independent Label award at the  Independent Music Awards (AIR) after opening the event with a powerful speech on the importance of independent music.

We’d also like to thank Tim for kicking off Albert’s Rooftop Summer Series, a music industry event held on the Alberts’ rooftop for the warmer months of the year. Tim (aka Urthboy)  performed songs from Smokey's Haunt with Jane Tyrell (The Herd, Urthboy) and Gus (Hermitude)
