After hearing the A-Side, Perpetual Night on his myspace, I am definitely going to pick this up.
I got a single of his a few years back 'live outside' and I remember reading in the liner notes it was recorded live on the side of the road in some park in NJ, and that basically sold me. Anyone who had the conviction enough to drag a drum kit, amps and guitars and a 4 track to perform a live show in the middle of nowhere sounded bad ass to me. The tracks inside were just what I wanted...raw, barely held together little pop gems, pretty much Jonathan Richman style, one take...literally the thing that has been going on since the dawn of garage rock bands. But God damn if this hasn't evolved into some kind of jumpier, more effected Jeff Novak, all with an early stones blues rock...there's even I think a touch of that piano...awesome. Completely catchy, bare bones, the melody is perfect. Can't wait to hear the B-Side of this one.
He's playing all over NY the next few months hopefully he'll have copies of his full length June 18th at the Cakeshop.
