- Root For Ruin by Les Savy Fav
9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 09 September 2010
It's a mystery to me why Les Savy Fav aren't a more popular band. Sure, they are are well liked band but in my opinion they should be fucking massive! They've always written fantastic music and i don't reckon they've committed anything shitty to tape with 'Root To Ruin' being no exception. That's five studio albums in and they still fucking rule!! How many bands can say that? I heard 'Let's Get Out Of Here' once at Primavera back in April and it has stuck with me ever since. To hear it this morning in all it's post-Pixies glory is enough to bring a little tear of joy to my eye. It's not only a classic Les Savy Fav tune, it's a classic tune full stop. The rest of the album ain't to shabby either sir. It's certainly a raw, savage beast by comparison to 'Let's Be Friends' yet it's still packs plenty of variety in whilst maintaining it's purest pop sensibility. While it still goes for the jugular, to a degree it bypasses the 'Let's Be friends' sound in favour of a 'Go Forth'/'Cat & the Cobra' vibe. Tim's lyrics are riddled with flamboyant charm and his delivery is as adventurous as ever. The band sound awesome too! The music is dynamic and fresh for the most part and even when things get a little steady like on 'Dear Crutches' they still sound better than most bands. What can i say, they've put in the man hours, they've made every effort to meet you half way, buy this album and show your love for one of America's finest rock bands. Amazing record. Thanks lads. Roll on Primavera 2011.
