SAVAK
SAVAK
The band SAVAK (pronounced “sah-vawk”) was formed in 2015 by members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, Nation of Ulysses, and The Cops. Their influences range from ’60s Texas psychedelia to British pub rock to early-’80s American hardcore, with some Zamrock and Chicha thrown in for good measure. SAVAK connect the dots from The Adverts to Bubble Puppy to The 101ers to MDC, making stops at Chrissy Zebby Tembo and Los Mirlos along the route. Their first album “Best of Luck in Future Endeavors” was released May 27, 2016 on Comedy Minus One.
Lake Ruth
Lake Ruth
Lake Ruth was formed in 2015 by multi-instrumentalist Hewson Chen of The New Lines, drummer Matt Schulz (Holy Fuck, SAVAK, Enon) and vocalist Allison Brice, best known for her prior work with UK groups The Eighteenth Day of May and The Silver Abduction. Their debut 7", 'The Inconsolable Jean-Claude / The Prisoner's Dimemma' was released to critical acclaim in February 2016 on UK cult label The Great Pop Supplement (Spacemen 3, Dean & Britta, Wooden Shjips), with a full-length album, 'Actual Entity' following in June to an equally enthusiastic reception.

With a unique sound rooted in 1960s experimentation, the trio blends elements of baroque pop, pysch, kraut, jazz and electronic music – resulting in rhythmically propulsive tunes, rich with multilayered guitars, modular synths and atmospheric vocals.

A three piece in the studio, Lake Ruth doubles in size for the live stage, with the addition of René Dennis (The New Lines), James Canty (The Make-Up, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Savak) and Sohrab Habibion (Edsel, Obits, Savak).

Press:

"Explores all manner of '60s baroque psychedelia, full of chiming guitars, harpsichord, a wide array of organs and synthesizers, and dips into faery folk, krautrock and other studies... It's a gorgeous, bewitching album." — Brooklyn Vegan

"The LP's grand throughout, but they really get you on the opening track, a Zombies/Left Banke baroque treasure like the wistful Chills backing Dusty Springfield or maybe Nancy Sinatra for a Bond film." — The Big Takeover

"How the Allah-Las would most probably sound if they were to get in touch with their feminine side. Bullseyes are hit with effortless frequency and such heady quality, resulting in an aural creation of unerring beauty." - Shindig! Magazine

"Splices together lattices of salacious Histoire de Melody Nelson-style funk and Broadcast's retro space-pop, over which Brice's airy Sarah Cracknell-meets-Kate Bush tones glide with a calming confidence… insistent drums, fuzz-tone guitar and luxuriant keyboards imagine Stereolab cutting some rug in an almost baroque fashion." — Delusions of Adequacy
