Les Savy Fav is a great live band, so notorious for their live shows, in fact, that the concert-going experience is more encouraged for prospective fans than buying their latest CD. But this EP changes all that, capturing every ounce of spontaneity and energy of their shows into a live recording of five angular, punky, action-packed songs. The soundís always tight, and the direction unexpected, with bursts of start-stop dislocation like the explosive ìHide Me From Next February,î or in the dynamic title track. This takes Les Savy Fav to a whole new level. Try if you like The Dismemberment Plan, or Q and Not U.
