Les Savy Fav
Les Savy Fav
Les Savy Fav is a New York City indie rock band. Their style is influenced by art rock and post-hardcore. The group is known for the stage presence of lead singer Tim Harrington.

The group's original line-up, formed in 1995, all met while attending the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island. Live shows are punctuated by the antics of frontman Harrington, including kissing multiple audience members and on-stage wardrobe changes. The rest of the band continues to play as if nothing out of the ordinary is happening.

2012 is shaping up to be a big year for Oberhofer. Announced today via Spin Magazine, the debut record by the Tacoma native, titled Time Capsules II, will be released on March 27th by Glassnote. This album is a bold and exciting statement for Brad Oberhofer, recorded in Brooklyn last fall with legendary producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, Morrissey among others). The first single off Time Capsules II, "HEART", can be downloaded here. Oberhofer is hitting the road this spring and embarking on an extensive string of dates, with a confirmed appearance at Coachella Music Festival.
Enjoy.

Emotion is what drives the psychedelic catchy pop rock tunes crafted by the ofteffervescent Brad Oberhofer. Drawing on influences ranging from Brian Wilson to Descartes, the 21 year old is fixated on the idea of making philosophically minded, energetic melodies that just make people smile. "Music is this thing I just inherently do and psychologically, I have a desire to make as many people happy as possible. Music helps you think about stuff, it helps you feel, you know?" With an unforgettable way of speaking directly from the heart, Brad Oberhofer's songs have a pulse that form the very core of what makes Oberhofer, Oberhofer. To put it quite simply, a great Rock & Roll band.

Armed with a belief that you spend your entire life searching for the socially aware version of the 5 year old “you”, he tries to inject each song with the innocence felt by that same kid, sitting on the couch of his parents house playing the broken guitar he spent months teaching himself how to play. Referring to his songwriting as "a time capsule of exactly how Iʼm feeling at a particular moment", each song on his forthcoming debut, Time Capsules II, is a clear, unrestrained look inside the head of Brad Oberhofer. "Gold" is a reflection on two magical weeks spent with a first love that inadvertently initiated his musical endeavors. "Away Frm U” is an upbeat pop song about saying goodbye to that love Like most of the impressive debut, the stand-out "I Could Go" shows that above all, his heart is on his sleeve in both his words and everything he creates, a trademark that suits his search for sincerity well.
After moving to Brooklyn from his hometown of Tacoma, Washington, to attend New York University, Brad quickly immersed himself in the indie rock community forming the 4 piece which is now quite simply, Oberhofer. Catching the attention of Glassnote Records, the band officially joined the labelsʼ roster over the summer of 2011. Brad recorded the debut album Time Capsules II with legendary producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, Morrissey among others) in Brooklyn last fall and is now preparing for a year on the road, playing shows all across the country, including a performance at this springʼs Coachella. Itʼs apparent that this year is going to be a big one.

So it was 2009. A guitar was tuned oddly and played vigorously. Songs were written. Drummers had come and gone (and one bassist). Nothing solidified itself. Then the odd guitar tuner person contacted Dave Leto. Dave came in and delivered the goods. Hammered it down. Now the next phase was to line up another person who would be down for this brand of mayhem. Zach Jaeger was such an obvious choice for the duty. He would also escalate the hilarity of the group hang considerably. Within a few months of jamming, we all came to understand that we made noise that we all enjoyed. The rest is very brief history that a small handful of people are even remotely aware of. For now...
