Savoir Adore, an electro pop outfit from Brooklyn, are in the midst of a month long residency at Cake Shop to promote their debut record, In The Wooded Forest. For the most part, ITWF (which came out last year on Cantora Records), is a dreamy and entrancing LP, but I’d be curious to see what kind of energy Paul Hammer and Deidre Muro bring to songs like the drum and disco infused “Merp”, the Fleetwood Mac-ish “Space Travel”, and the balls-out rocker “Bodies” in a live setting. Unfortunately, I don’t know the answer to these questions because couldn’t make it out to their show last week due to some unforeseen circumstances. Fortunately though, I can satisfy my curiosity tonight (Thu, Feb 18) when Savoir Adore play their third and final residency show at Cake Shop with Red Wire Black Wire, Ennui, and The Bloodsugars. They go on at 11PM, but if it’s anything like last week (packed), you’ll want to get there early (and you shouldn’t miss The Bloodsugars either).
Here’s some overly gushy press blurbage about the band:
Savoir Adore are a fantasy-pop collective, painting songs with imagery and imagination while making fans out of the most cynical of critics. Theirs is a refreshing tale from anything and everything we’ve experienced lately. Savoir Adore principal members Paul Hammer and Deidre Muro never had intentions of recording tracks to be thrown into the blogosphere or gaining major A&R attention, and as their MySpace page states, “Savoir Adore is an accident”. Just for fun, the two multi-instrumentalist songwriters decided to collaborate after two years of catching each other’s solo performances. Challenging themselves in the studio, the duo “formed a basis of experimentation that became the primal essence of Savoir Adore.” Combining inspirations drawn from sounds, atmospheres, classic songwriting and technology, their instinctive approach has earned Savoir Adore’s songs the tag “magical” by the likes of NPR.
