Among Savages “Start at the Beginning EP”
These songs aren’t exactly what you would think of if I told you they were soulful bordering on blues and/or jazz because that’s not quite accurate. I can’t fully understand the first song. It’s like The Incredible Moses Leroy, who seems to have come and gone in an instant.
By the second song we have more of an Elliott Smith sound even though there still exist these Macy Gray sounding backing vocals. It goes on in this manner, leaving me so familiar with the music I’m hearing yet completely unknown to it.
