Savoy Motel singer and bass player Jeffrey Novak (Cheap Time) is too young to remember the 1970s, but he’s studied the more colorful corners of the decade well. On his quartet’s self-titled debut, they meld power pop with glam and proto-punk to irresistible effect. The album also yielded one of 2016’s best singles, the falsetto and fuzz-drenched “Sorry People.” From top to bottom, it’s F-U-N, from the Billy Squier beats to the ESG dance grooves to the Donovan-esque flights of fancy. Bonus points for the jolly kidney-bean-shaped music notes on the record cover. Long Island teen brothers Lemon Twigs made their mark as actors (Sinister, People Like Us) before recording last year’s baroque-pop full-length, their second, with Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado for Britain’s venerable 4AD Records.
