Nude Beach has been kicking around Brooklyn for four years now, with a couple DIY albums to its name, but this re-release of its stellar II might raise its profile. The band has been compared in the press to Tom Petty and The Replacements, and these comparisons are apt to a degree. However, II sounds more like an obscure power pop classic from the '70s, something like a crunchier Rubinoos for the DIY set. The guitars are revved up, the melodies jaunty and sing-a-long, and the tunes catchy enough to stick in your head for days.
