Brooklyn group SAVAK have a new album slated for 2022, and while details have not been shared, they have just released a new two-track digital single. Michael Jaworski’s “Dealers” is a tattered, harmony-laden power-pop nugget starring Matt Hunter (Silver Jews, New Radiant Storm King) on ​​bass, while Sohrab Habibion’s “Set Apart” leads to mutant krautrock territory and stars Nick Sewell (biblical) on bass. You can stream both below.

SAVAK also has a few live dates coming later this fall, including a show from Brooklyn to Union Pool on November 11 with pigs and Jay Vons, and two shows in December with Bread Archers in Baltimore and Richmond. They also have dates in Washington (with White jeans) and Philadelphia. All dates are listed below.

Separately, Sohrab has formed a new group, Zwei Null Zwei, along with fellow DC punk / indie veterans Eli Janney (Girls Against Boys), James Canty (The Make-Up, Ted Leo + Pharmacists) and Geoff Sanoff (Edsel ).
