Les Savy Fav Set To Release New Record; Soft Rock Fans Tremble In Fear, Hide In Tall Bushes

Although the ever-so-lovely-to-listen-to crew of Les Savy Fav have released songs here and there since their previous record, the world has not been graced by a new long player by the quartet since 2001. (So that's why I've felt like there hasn't been anything worthwhile in my life since Radiohead released Amnesiac!) When the NY-based group is not busy pleasing all them blogs out there, they're busy collecting voicemail from eager fans, preparing them for their ultimate demise on their forthcoming disc, entitled Let's Stay Friends.

The album will be released on Frenchkiss Records and hosts an action-packed guestlist that even the most choice non-believer would admire. Featuring collaborations with Emily Haines (Metric), Nick Thorburn (Islands), Enon, Eleanor Friedberger (Fiery Furnaces), and Joe Plummer (Black Heart Procession), the 12-track disc will hit shelves September 18. That's right, folks... a Tuesday! How surprised are you that a new album is coming out on a Tuesday!?

Oh, that's right, you'd like to know what the song titles are. Don't you know that these lists of titles are almost meaningless until you hear the songs? Gosh!

Let's Stay Friends (even when I'm being a jerk):
