2012 album from the Indie rockers, Hailing from Tennessee, Cheap Time has been around in one incarnation or another since 2006, The nucleus has always been Jeffrey Novak, who writes and sings in addition to playing guitar and keyboards, The band began with members of the band Be Your Own Pet rounding out the lineup-theirs was a sound of a teen punk band with more attitude than musicianship, owing more than a little to early Redd Kross, By the time Cheap Time recorded their debut album, the personnel had changed drastically and, in addition to improved musicianship, Novak brought in influences of '70s glam and power pop acts like Sparks and The Quick, Despite the many changes, however, Cheap Time has always been a sum of its parts, A quintessential ingredient is the low-fi bombast with which they scuzz up their otherwise lightweight brand of simplified 1970s glam punk, packing an impressive amount of adolescent snottiness into two-minute blasts of sound with both precision and melody.
