Savages Still Mad at Sufjan Over 2013 Font Diss
Back in 2013, Sufjan Stevens took to Tumblr to trash the typography on the cover of Savages’ debut album, Silence Yourself. “The very cool SAVAGES has allowed a very uncool typographical blunder on its LP cover,” he wrote. “Who the Fraggle designed this?”
Three years later, Savages’ Jehnny Beth has responded, with comments made on her Beats 1 radio show “Start Making Sense,” airing tonight. When a listener requested that she play “Impossible Soul,” from Stevens’ 2010 album The Age of Adz, she refused, saying that not only would it not make sense to play a 25-minute-long song on the radio, but also that Stevens was more or less banned from her show because of his remarks about the artwork.
