Les Savy Fav's "Sleepless In Silverlake"

Posted by Andrew R Tonry on Thu, Mar 10, 2011 at 6:33 PM

You'd be hard pressed to find a bigger Les Savy Fav fan than me. But I was a little disappointed when Ezra sent me the the link to the band's new video for "Sleepless in Silverlake" calling it the "best song" on the band's latest, Root for Ruin.

Despite having spent a few weeks on two separate occasions in Silverlake already this year—I get the sentiment—this track just doesn't do much for me. It's one of the rare LSF songs that ever falls flat. Ezra, I think you crazy.

I would've went with "High and Unhinged." By a mile.
