Cut-Ups, the new SAVAK record on Ernest Jenning Record Co., consists of 10 immaculate nuggets of primo, left-field rock'n'roll.
It’s a heavy smorgasbord with results as laudable as one would expect given the pedigree. Cut-Ups is as kaleidoscopic, ambitious and as curious a record as you could hope for.
Like their debut LP on Comedy Minus One, Best of Luck in Future Endeavors, there’s that instant thing – instant hooks all over, instant choruses – but not cheap instant like the noodles. The flavors on this record have a long finish, with a satisfyingly wide palate.
There are pristine multi-part harmonies and skronky jazz bits, as well as odd, subtle experiments with Joe Meek-y sound design. There’s that undeniable propulsive groove that many of these guys have become synonymous with. There are also healthy smatterings of garage rock, ‘60s jangle, jazz and psych.
The devil is in the details on SAVAK records and there are many, many details on Cut-Ups.
“A potent and pointed agitpop racket which manages to balance the dark and moody with the catchy as fuck.” –Noisey
“Dread-fueled, post-punk angst tempered with catchy hooks.” –Magnet
“SAVAK is the band that plays the party after the after party.” –Jersey Beat
