8/10 ReviewBot300 12 November 2013

Cheap Time frontman Jeffrey Novak drops his third solo effort this week, and it’s a rambunctious trip through the psych-pop backwoods as you would expect from this chappie, only this time round he’s reined in his more anarchic instincts to put together a collection which is more coherent and less wild-eyed and chaotic than we’re used to.

Make no mistake, though, this is still vintage Novak, with his snotty vocals, bold guitar tones and slightly glammy beats still very much present throughout, but there’s a kind of Kurt Weill-esque theatricality to some tracks like ‘Unfinished Memory’, whose piano-heavy hammy dramatism is almost like Chuck Mosley singing along to Ben Folds before it unravels into rolling guitar feedback and segues into the obnoxious chugging march of ‘Heritage Towers’.

He’s always had that glammy edge that makes some garage rock fans look down their nose at him, but at the end of the day Novak is an excellent songwriter who has an instinctive flair for putting the nastiest noises in the nicest sounding places. For fans of King Tuff, Mikal Cronin, Bikes, etc. The press release says it's on randomly mixed colour vinyl, but the one I'm reviewing is black so I guess that means that the colour vinyl has been randomly inserted into the pressing and it's pot luck if you get one.
