TALKY TINA: Self-titled: CD

This supergroup consisting of members of Odd Numbers and Parasites deliberately focuses on fairly straight rock, with an undeniable influence from all things punk. I was expecting something a little cornier, but this is a reasonably restrained, enjoyable release. I’m curious to see what else they’ll come up with. The lyrics are especially interesting, mixing humor and introspection. I’d happily talk to this Tina, whoever she may be.
