LES SAVY FAV. I'd heard of them. Didn't know the proper way to pronounce them... but I'd heard of them.
Yet, checking my mix CD collection, I discovered that I had never used one of their many songs in one of my many mixes. Not even one. Not even ever.
Could mean a couple things. (1.) I'd never heard any songs of theirs. (2.) I'd never heard any songs of theirs I liked. Could go either way.
So, better late than never (maybe, maybe not), I turned my attention to their latest cycle of songs -- LET'S STAY FRIENDS.
Impressions? Noisy. Uncompromising. Unforgiving. Freewheeling. Fun? Kinda undeniably attention-getting (grabbing) despite these guys' oh-so-obvious revelrous glee in fucking with verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus traditionalists like me (myself)? Seems so, uh-huh, yes sir.
The two songs below are going on mix CDs. Maybe there'll be more (maybe not). But it's a start. Either way. Yes sir.
