I’m not quite sure what to make of this new track. It’s a mellow, well-written song that’s consistent with Blitzen Trapper’s past material but it doesn’t quite make the connection that their previous hits did. The production feels a bit light and monotonous but I don’t think that’s what feels off here. I’m curious to hear what the rest of the album sounds like but I’m not quite sure where to set my expectations for it.
A well-produced documentary and a great look at a band who, ten years later (and after only one album), still means so much to so many people.
Sufjan Stevens’ thoughts on Savages’ use of typography. (Don’t mind the unicorns throwing up rainbows in the background.)
Thank you, Savages, for the urgent all caps homily (to “recompose” ourselves in silence). I will never forgive your awkward italics, but I will forever sing your anthems to my children’s children.
One of punk’s greatest bands live via Marinet TVM. I still need to see them live and sincerely hope I get the chance to before they hang things up. Superb performance.
Odd video, fantastic song, great album.
