We first heard Savak via Jon Solomon’s excellent Comedy Minus One label; their _Best of Luck in Future Endeavors_ LP was one of our favorites of 2016 and we quickly became followers of the band’s outstanding output. Founded by members of Obits, The Nation of Ulysses, Holy Fuck and The Cops, the band’s literate, offbeat pop draws from a wide range of influences; their albums with both CMO and the Ernest Jenning Record Company are absolutely essential.
We’re beyond thrilled to be working with them on the next installment of our lathe-cut series. On June 3, we’ll be releasing “The Point of the Point” w/ “Checked Out,” which will be released on limited-edition 8″ lathe-cut format. With artwork designed by Eli Kasan of The Gotobeds, the record will be limited to just 100 copies – once they’re gone, they’re gone!
We’ll be making the record available for preorder on June 19 via our Bandcamp site, a great day to buy because Bandcamp will be donating all their fees to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. That same day, we’ll be donating OUR proceeds to Rise Up Kingston, a grassroots organization devoted to dismantling the structures of racism and oppression in our community.
