If there's one thing you need to remember about Nashville-ian Jeffrey Novak is that he never stops.

Like... never. Between his main band Cheap Time's relentless touring schedule & recording, Jeffrey Novak has managed to produce his solo effort for Trouble In Mind.

Gone are his blown-out, trashy Reatards/Oblivians/Persuaders worship, replaced with a sincere understanding of the maudlin melodies & pop music from the early 70s inspired by the likes of Ray Davies, John Cale, Brian Eno & the pervy balladry of Kevin Ayers.

"Lemon Kid" is undoubtedly his most focused solo work to date, distilling all that came before into one succinct & engaging listen.

Guitars squeal & synths unravel from song to song, with Novak pushing the envelope of what in takes to create music in a pop setting, teasing sonic boundaries while retaining what makes a song great - the hooks.
