Savages "... believe that the use of phones to film and take pictures during a gig prevents all of us from totally immersing ourselves"
Playing at Neumos last night, Savages joined the revolution sparked by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs last week at Webster Hall, by way of signs posted outside the showroom asking people to actually watch the shows with their eyes instead of their phones. Conveniently enough, my iPhone died just as I was walking into the club; so spending just under an hour in the company of their dark reverby guitars and droning vocals without even the temptation to gauge the time was kind of transcendental.
Appropriately enough, their album, scheduled for release next month on Matador is titled Silence Yourself.
