REVISIT: Les Savy Fav (Go Forth)

Earlier this summer, Les Savy Fav bassist Syd Butler revealed that him and the fellas had designs on recording a new album in November for a March/April release. This kind of news is a major blip on my life radar. LSF is solidly in the all-time Top 5 of macktronic.

Go Forth is their latest proper full-length (originally out in 2001), not counting the 7-inch compilation (Inches) released last year. I will always remember this album since I listened to in (almost) non-stop during a marathon drive from SF to Boulder through a number of snowstorms. I can't think of a better soundtrack to not being able to see 10 feet in front of your car due to the white out. Exciting! Feast your ears on the inventive songwriting and energetic sounds of Les Savy Fav.

You can buy LSF Go Forth for only $9.99 at Insound. (And, if you enter "ilovesummer10" then you'll get 10% off that) . Great deal.

In April I talked about a limited edition 7" that was in the works over at Rococo Records. You can now pre-order (reserve) your own copy of the Hit By Train Hit By A Car 7" by clicking here. It's limited to 1000 total copies (with only 200 in dark green vinyl). Get 'em while you can.
