My knowledge of David Novick is limited, I’m not gonna try and disguise that fact or distract you with tales of what I eating or how many words I’ve typed today or weather the sun is shining or not, I’m just gonna give you my take on it and leave it at that.
‘Your Sister’s hand’ is a majestic collection of folk-centric, occasionally psychy pop music recorded in Novick’s bedroom and assisted from time to time by label head honcho Ty Segall (bringing the drum skills) as well as buddies David and Claire Plump. I’m instantly reminded of the first couple of Woods LP’s due to rickety lo-fi yet highly ambitious recording style, that and there’s some excellent tunes on here. I’m not mad on Novick’s voice but he has his moments, it’s the backing harmonies and attention to detail regarding arrangements and melody that really shine.
He’s got a knack for a sparse, well orchestrated pop tune but he filters it via cheapo four tracks and humble bedroom atmospherics and, as a result, it’s both impressively ambitious and notably humble in tone. The opening instrumental ‘Gate’ is particularly impressive and hints at all sorts of avenues for Novick’s future releases. Lets hope he can resist the urge to visit one of them proper daft recording studios.
