♫ Les Savy Fav – Sleepless In Silverlake

Les Savy Fav are one of those bands that I have been hearing about fooooooorever but never heard their music. Their latest album Root For Ruin has been making suck a racket on the music blogs that I decided to check it out. While the album is some solid guitar rock and there are a handful of jams it doesn’t really stick with with me as a whole. Lead single “Sleepless In Silverlake” is another story. If all the tracks on Root For Ruin were this instantly catchy and memorable then I’d be on board for sure! That guitar kicks things off so right and the rest of the song follows suit! Other favorites on the album include the churning driving anthem “Let’s Get Out Of Here” and the guitar n’ drums head bobber “High and Unhinged.” Any Les Savy Fav fans want to set me straight? Perhaps some other recommended tracks for a casual newbie like me?

    All of the “Inches” album is absolutely incredible. Super-catchy stuff. Some of it takes some time to let you realize how incredibly catchy it is (if that makes any sense). If you’re willing to go a little darker in terms of atmosphere, mood, and music arrangements, “The Cat and the Cobra” EP has pretty excellent cuts, too. “Wake Up!” and “Reformat” are the best off of that one, IMH.

    They take simple very far and still find a way to be unique while conforming within major scales. Altough the lead singer is visually repulsive in concert (check out the San Antonio show featuring the song “Sweat Desends”), their music is absolutely fun to play and it certainly does not offend the sense of hearing! I must give credit to the singer, however, for moving forward with his dream and talents as most people who look like him tend to slide right in to a 9 to 5 mold…
