A. Savage :: Several Songs About Fire

Several Songs About Fire, the second solo release from Parquet Courts frontman A. Savage, is an LP in the truest sense. There are 10 tracks across two sides, forty-five minutes and change. There is a picture of the artist on the cover. The songs are strong and solid, at once distinct and of a piece, shot through with themes and ideas that recur and refract from one moment to the next. These are tried-and-true strategies, the hallmarks of one of the very finest mediums ever conceived: the album. Don’t fix what ain’t broke.
