Sneak Peek: JEFFREY NOVAK releases Lemon Kid

JEFFREY NOVAK OF CHEAP TIME TO RELEASE LEMON KID 

NOVEMBER 19TH 

PhotoIf there is one thing to consider about Nashvillian Jeffrey Novak, it’s that he never stops. Between the relentless touring schedule of his main band, Cheap Time, and consistently recording, he somehow finds the time to work on solo material under his own name. His debut solo effort, After the Ball, was self-released on his own Sonic Assault Records in 2009 to little fanfare. It showcased a very different side of Novak — gone was his blown-out trashy Reatards/Oblivians/Pursuaders worship and in its place was a sincere appreciation for the maudlin melodies and pop music from the early seventies inspired by the likes of Ray Davies, John Cale, Brian Eno, and the pervy balladry of Kevin Ayers. Since then, Novak released the follow up, Baron in the Trees, on In The Red. His forthcoming album, Lemon Kid, out November 19th on Trouble In Mind, is undoubtedly Novak’s most focused solo work to date, distilling all that came before into one succinct and engaging listen. Guitars squeal and synths unravel from song to song with Novak pushing the envelope of what it takes to create music in a pop setting. Teasing sonic boundaries while rethinking what makes a song memorable – the hooks. Get a taste via “Pictures on a Screen.”
