In 2016, LA-based Hanni El Khatib released no fewer than 5 EPs. “Savage Times” is a collection of those EPs plus several new songs.
Hanni El Khatib’s first idea for his “Savage Times” project was to do something he’d never done before. Instead, he ended up doing … well, everything he’d never done before. He’d be playing new instruments, writing in unfamiliar new ways, opening himself up to an unrelenting stream of ideas and dedicating himself totally to pure musical instinct—and then releasing songs instantly to the public.
“Savage Times” was an experiment, but an experience, too that touches on some of the most personal, political & social songs to date.
The album is out now via Innovative Leisure/Inertia.
