Les Savy Fav

Longtime fans of Brooklyn’s Les Savy Fav have been making a fuss about the quintet’s latest LP, Root For Ruin, which was released in September. The riffy and harmonic record lacks the rough abrasion and uncontrollable antics of Les Savy Fav’s earlier work, seemingly swimming the same circles in the pop pool instead of diving to any new and unexplored depths. Still, songs like “Sleepless in Silverlake” and the lead single “Let’s Get Out of Here” are undeniably catchy and high energy, and Tim Harrington is still the same big wild beast of a man who may, at any point in the show, take off his clothes, kiss you, or pants you. With Steel Tigers of Death, Absolute Monarchs. ERIN K. THOMPSON
