Savoir Adore - Machines EP

Brooklyn indie rockers Savoir Adore have been on my mind for the past few days, since their new Machines EP dropped on Sunday -- it's a 3-song EP, and they're giving it away on their website for free download. Check it out!

If you live in New York you might've heard of them already, as they were just chosen as one of the L Magazine's "8 NYC Bands You Need To Hear In 2009," and they also had a stint at this year's SXSW Festival. Deidre Muro and Paul Hammer are the original mama and papa of the operation, coming from singer-songwriter backgrounds until they decided to hole up one weekend in Hammer's upstate New York recording studio. The outcome was a mouthful of a 4-song concept EP, The Adventures of Professor Pumpernickel and the Girl with Animals in Her Throat. Machines is their first release since then, and a precursor to their full-length that'll be out later this year on Cantora Records (also home to Rumspringa and MGMT).

Savoir Adore's frenetic and lo-fi "Les Grenouilles" is a staple of my workout playlist, but check out their more tame, beautiful side on "The Garden"...then go download the rest of the Machines EP.
