Savoy Motel – “Crossword Puzzle”
Been waiting on news of a new Savoy Motel and the first single from the upcoming Love Your Face is upon us and feelin’ fine. There’s less freak-funk this time around, but the band’s still picking at the prime of the ’70s this go-round — injecting a touch of bubbleglam, and it works with the band’s brand of hip-slung swagger. The beat’s made for dancing up a sweat in the pre-disco peak of ’74, rollin’ around the Bay City and soaking up a bit of foot-stomp shimmy from The Sweet while they’re at it. The guitars trade between bounce and crunch and the song is aided nicely by the VHS-vein animation from songwriter Jeffrey Novak. Look out for the new LP soon and let this one get under you skin in the meantime.
