DUFFY’S CUT: Self-titled: CD

A nice curve ball here in the form of Philly mod/punk. The originals are punchy yet tuneful, and the covers of Eddie Holland’s “Leaving Here,” and the Small Faces’ “Whatcha Gonna Do About It,” are done well. The overall feel here is of a band with a residency at a bar I’d be happy to frequent—not too flashy, but solid enough to keep spirits up (and other spirits flowing).
