Riff: Savages – “Hit Me”

May 2, 2013

Oh hit me/Hit me with your hands/Oh it’s the only way I ever learn/Oh if hell is/If hell is a dog fight/I think I’m ready tonight

from Hit Me lyrics by Savages

Riding the same anger that dominates the second half of Silence Yourself, cymbals take their most audible beating here on an otherwise calculated Joy Division careen, Jehnny Beth hitting her most antagonizing moment on an increasingly feminist froth. Portrait of a curious estrogen moshpit; [LISTEN].
