Les Savy Fav unearths Root for Ruin

Prepare yourselves and your wallet for September 14th, because it’s going to be a pretty intense day. It just so turns out that not just one, or two, or three, or four, or five of our “35 More Albums to Buy in 2010” will be released on that day. As of now, it’s actually six, or 17%. Hope you’re ready!

Album #6 comes in the form of Les Savy Fav‘s fifth full-length, an 11-track effort titled Root for Ruin. According to the band (via P4k), the album is “moderately harder” than its processor, 2007’s Let’s Stay Friends, and focuses on a sound more like “mid-1990s indie bands.” Guitarist Seth Jabour describes it as a cross between “Superchunk or Archers of Loaf or Blur or something like that.” For a more engaging preview, we suggest you scroll below, where you’ll find a live cut of the album’s first track “Appetites”.

Currently, Les Savy Fav only have a few dates scheduled in support of the release, but one of them is at our upcoming Northside Festival Showcase in Brooklyn on June 27th. Click here for more information.
