This album (or at least, the drummer) was recommended to me by the wonderful Drummer's Journal (check out their Facebook page) - and any magazine that likes Evelyn Glennie and Bill Bruford HAS to be a good bet, and so I splashed out on this album sound unheard.

Admission: I am a VERY old Van Der Graaf and King Crimson fan, who has also collected the works of Pearl Jam and Smashing Pumpkins (amongst many others)... so what have we here?

Drums - Loud, Fierce, Crisp
Bass - Stunning, reminds me of the Stranglers - Cutting, Crunching, but very Clear
Guitar - Noise, Howls, Screeching above the tremendous rhythm section
Vocals - Perfectly suited to the above Holocaust

Not sure what genre (if any) this fits into... Heavy Rock, Metal, Punk - all sorts of echoes of music from the last 50 years... I am really enjoying this :-)

This is a fantastic debut album and it's great to hear from a band with such ferocious passion in an age where most artists seem rather indifferent to what they are doing. Silence Yourself even has the band's manifesto written on the covers and its message couldn't be anymore relevant in our age of constant distractions and babbling.

So they have the substance and thankfully, the talent to match it. Savages built their reputation on their ferocious live performances and it is only a minor quibble that the album doesn't live up to that. But again, bands that are stronger live than on album are another rarity and this album is excellently put together.

You can hear right away the influences behind the Savages music, but Jehnny Beth's wail is out of this world, completely original and surprisingly diverse; she has an excellent way of phrasing words that really separates her from the herd. For the most part she uses her voice like the music behind her, to confront the listener, to demand them to hear what she has to say, which brings me onto the lyrics, which are quite excellent and biting.

For the most part, the album does have a unified sound, which is deliberately confrontational and sparse, with no fancy showmanship to detract from the band's message. Most of the songs are lean, harsh, some, like Strife and Hit Me, even suggest an almost metal-head influence behind the band, which isn't that hard to believe. But even this album has its moodier pieces, the first coming right in the middle of the album with Waiting For A Sign and the Instrumental, Dead Nature.

Ever since I bought this album last year before the Mercury music prize nomination, it has been on constant rotation. It's not listened to every week but when I do dig it out it stays on my CD player for many listens. The things l've loved about the record are the vocals and the lyrics are really intriguing, I don't really know what they mean but it really works. It's a great sounding voice. The guitars are dripping with reverb to give a goth vibe to the songs. The songs with piano and saxophone on like 'marshall dear' just work so well.
I think this should of won the Mercury Music Prize in 2013, a more worthy winner that James Blake who in my opinion music I find boring.
I saw them live last year and they were great the band are a collective whole, but I did find the singer Jehnny Beth who was the only one wearing a white blouse stood out. All eyes were focused on her among the black of the rest of the band.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Savages were the anti-Haim: an all-female post-punk band with little regard for pop credibility but wholeheartedly committed to espousing a fiery DIY punk attitude in everything they do. In a year which saw Pussy Riot languishing in a prison cell and proving that Vladimir Putin is almost certainly not a punk rocker, Savages’ Silence Yourself is Exhibit A in proving that there is nothing more rousing than a female front woman channeling Siouxsie Sioux, as the short-haired Jehnny Beth does here in a series of anguished yelps evocative of The Pop Group’s Y.

From the riot-inducing bassline to the shipwreck-summoning psiren of Jehnny Beth’s voice on ‘Shut Up’, Savages have a canny knack of creating the sort of music which feels completely familiar, sharing DNA with the likes of Public Image Ltd and even Joy Division in their love of ominous foreboding. The anthemic riffs on ‘She Will’ and ‘Husbands’ certainly sound like long-lost cousins to the Au Pairs and immediately give you the impression that Savages are musically far more capable of transcending post-punk, but this genre is clearly just a matter of providing uniformity for them.

Where Savages stand apart is that they feel utterly sincere in recalling the era of the ‘no wave’ movement, with Jehnny Beth in particular coming across like a quasi-feminist pariah who stands out starkly in today’s fickle musical landscape. Karen O is an obvious musical forebear, but Savages are anything but garage rock revivalists, especially since Silence Yourself makes many obvious overtures to atonality and dissosance in a way which the Yeah Yeah Yeahs never quite had the bravery to do.
