SAVAK - beg your pardon LP
SAVAK is Sohrab Habibion, Michael Jaworski & Matt Schulz
Beg Your Pardon, SAVAK's third release in as many years, follows a compelling progression from their past releases (2016's Best Of Luck In Future Endeavors and 2017's Cut-Ups) -- equally the most punk rock and sublime record in their repertoire. The new album features everything from noisy careeners and '80s hardcore nods to slightly glammy stompers and straight-up, New Zealand-inspired, guitar-pop songs (and that's just in the first 10 minutes of side one).
The band recorded and produced Beg Your Pardon themselves in their Gowanus practice space and then handed off the songs to Mikey Young (Royal Headache, Kelley Stoltz), Geoff Sanoff (Nada Surf, Luna), Ed Ackerman (The Jayhawks, John Wesley Harding) and Matthew Barnhart (Superchunk, METZ) to mix.
