More About

With his close ties to the late, great Jay Reatard, perhaps it isn't surprising that Cheap Time guitarist and songwriter Jeffrey Novak has emerged as one of the most talented disciples of the Memphis garage-rock avatar. Novak — who was living with Reatard and discovered his body when he died suddenly in 2010 at age 29 — has had a similarly prolific output as his mentor and friend, between Cheap Time's numerous recordings and a veritable avalanche of solo albums and singles. On the band's latest In the Red effort Exit Smiles, Novak seasons his love for early NYC punk and hooky power pop with hypnotic grooves that nod to the terse minimalism of the Fall and Gang of Four. Powered by the churning rhythms of drummer Ryan Sweeney and bassist Jessica McFarland, the trio will deliver gloriously krautrocking garage-punk when Cheap Time comes to the Bay Area for two shows this week.
