Savages

If there's any band who universally lived up to their hype at this year's CMJ, it had to be London's Savages. Everyone at BV loved them, we caught their sets at the Stereogum showcase and at our own day party. We also went over to Mercury Lounge after our Friday party (10/19) to catch them again, where they were headlining a sold out show with Choir of Young Believers, Daughter, San Cisco, and Emma Louise (who recently signed to Frenchkiss). J. Thoven was on that bill too but we missed their set. Pictures from the rest are in this post.

Meanwhile, Choir of Young Believers (who were also great at our Saturday day party) and Daughter are on a tour that hits Chicago tonight. Daughter also played the Glassnote CMJ showcase while they were in NYC.

Videos of Savages tearing it up during "Flying to Berlin" and "Husbands" at Mercury Lounge, and more pics from the show are below.

do they have any recorded songs or all we know of them is live?

Savages are a wee bit overrated. But the indie music scene (filled with folk-y/chill lo-fi shit) been needing a kick in the arse so they're a good thing

"Flying To Berlin" sounds a bit too much like Joy Division's "Colony" to me...

Only 4 comments...did the check for their publicist bounce?

Nope 3:06. I think there's been so many BV posts about them already that I think burnout is already starting to set in.
