Calgary’s answer to the Shins , Savk returned to the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Saturday, Nov. 7.

They didn’t have as many people as they usually do, but they had the audience mesmerized with hypnotic percussion Savk introduced music from his new CD in Lethbridge, Dev. 7. Photo by Richard Ameryand haunting vocal harmonies and a lot of ambient indie rock, with a strong nod to the Shins and just a touch of Pink Floyd psychedelia.

 Everyone in the room sat listening intently awash in layers of guitar and keyboards, which highlighted frontman Stephen VanKampen’s vocals.

 They picked up the pace near the end of the show with a massive, percussion filled jam as the band members multi-tasked, playing an array of drums, maracas and tambourines.
