Noughties #73: Les Savy Fav "Let's Stay Friends" (Frenchkiss, 2007)

Post-hardcare band, Les Savy Sav from Rhode Island, took a six year break due to 'writer's block' before this album emerged. The gap years were obviously conducive to the creative process, as Let's Stay Friends is a positive progression from their roots. The songs are sophisticated, layered with noises other than guitar and drums, and the song-writing is multi-dimensional and crisp, tinged with post-punk and new wave sensibilities amidst the grunge.

Highlights: savy fav - patty lee savy fav - raging in the plague age savy fav - kiss kiss is getting old
