Thurston Moore on Savages

Postby schwenko » Fri May 17, 2013 11:51 pm

from Rolling Stone:

"What do you make of current indie rock, like Vampire Weekend, the National or Spoon?
I'm totally open to it. I give a listen here or there. But I don't have much to say about it. Vampire Weekend just made a record that everyone says is great, and I'm really glad to hear that! [Laughs] But I don't know their music that well. I heard their first record and thought it was kind of interesting. But I tend to go for much more outsider kind of sounds and approaches. The band that made me think they had it going on was this all-girl band from London called Savages. I saw a couple of their gigs and totally dug it. It hit a lot of the marks that have always resonated with me – the early Rough Trade sound, Joy Division, early Swell Maps."
