[EXPERIMENTAL SHOEGAZE GRUNGE] Although the band refuses to create a Facebook page and its website is out of date, Naomi Punk’s sophomore album, Television Man, is all over the internet. Pitchfork gave it a good review. Rolling Stone says it’s worth risking tinnitus for. After gushing over the Olympia natives' 2013 SXSW performance, Stereogum premiered the album's title track. Television Man, released on Captured Tracks, went public in August, displaying the band’s signature, minimally tense grunge. The syncopated and downtrodden sound is achieved by sparse-yet-hard-hitting drums that dissipate into driving guitar work and Ty Segall-esque vocals. This is the kind of stuff I moved to the Pacific Northwest for. Tonight, Naomi Punk is paired with the ever-evolving raw power of fellow Northwesterners Broken Water.
