Cheap Time - Fantastic Explanations (and Similar Situations)


Christ, can't see the word "situation" without thinking of that goddamn ab-man on Jersey Shore. Anyway. Holiday break is over, back to it.

Review of the newest Cheap Time record, posted here:


This album, it makes me so sleepy. There's a whole lotta potential in this Novak fellow, and he's released some grand stuff (including a split with Bad Sports back in August), but this one sounds awfully tired and used up for having been recorded by someone only in his mid-20s. Suffers from that Craig Nichols slur and every chord strum is FUCKIN' EPIC without needing to be. But yes, there's a whole lotta potential.
