The runup to this new Savoy Motel seems to be a bit low key, but the band’s turning out some strong tracks in anticipation of Love Your Face. While the last track kept a bit of the swing in tact, Savoy seems to have jettisoned quite a bit of their funk and warped disco bounce on “Mouth To Ear Music,” with more of an emphasis on ‘70s roots bleeding into some of the Cosmic Americana sound. A bit of twang in the guitar, a ripple of piano and that flute soaring high up in the clouds, this is the band painted in sunset orange giving a roadworn version of their evergreen influences. I’m not mad at it, the comedown cool of the track fits the band well. The new record is out later in the year, no set date yet.
