Sean Nicholas Savage – Mutual Feelings of Respect and Admiration

I just reviewed this record for VUE:

Savage has been called Canada’s Daniel Johnston, but with his mounting eclectica he’s beginning to build a legacy akin to Bowie. On this outting he challenges the long-abhorred bastard of pop: disco. With a great deal owing to the gorgeous production of Silly Kissers’ David Carriere, Sean sets out to destroy convention. Whether it’s the deep down grooves of “In My Dream,” or the dreamy smoke-and-mirror arrangement of the opening “Oo La la,” Savage creates a new niche for this jettisoned genre. Despite the age old connotations of the disco medium, this record is very well set in the present. It’s the enchanted way the drum tracks blend with the bass lines and the synth that creates a vibe entirely disco. It’s the enchanted way the drum tracks blend with the bass lines and the synth to create a vibe entirely disco. Travolta owes Sean Savage a major high five for this major face lift.

5 stars
