NAKED TUNGS, THE: Distract Myself: CD

This four-song EP is reminiscent of rootsier-inspired new wave from the ’90s. The second song, “Warming Up,” moves at a mid-tempo rock pace with nicely done blasé vocal delivery. The rest of the songs move at a lackadaisical pace with a little swing. The last song, “Making You Guess,” ends the EP with some Sonic Youth-esque chord beating. If you’re into this sort of thing, the songs are well conceived and well recorded: definitely worth checking out. –Billups Allen (Self-released)
