Riff: Savages – “No Face”

May 2, 2013

You argue everything/Like a bird, who’s never learn to sing/Oh darling, are you free when you doubt/Oh darling, don’t worry about/Breaking my heart

from No Face lyrics by Savages

Berating with the feminist heave of preceding “She Will,” Savages carry on this refreshing pseudo-concept album with a frothy, angular attack on fake emotions, and the sorry souls drowning in doubt and boredom. There’s no whining in punk rock; [LISTEN].
