Nude Beach on Daytrotter

One of our newest power pop obsessions, Nude Beach, just recorded a most excellent session for Daytrotter. You can listen HERE. Tracks include The Witness, Radio, Geoffrey's Tune and Changes.

These guys are ONE MILLION PERCENT killing it in the 'bringing back the best parts of 70s rock n roll/power pop' category. Singer/lead guitarist Chuck Betz brought out a double neck guitar last time we saw them at Union Pool. Uh, need we say more? And I thought my Hamer Destroyer/ode to Rick Nielsen was cool...
