Naked Naps, Mothers, Less Western

When: Fri., Jan. 22, 9 p.m. 2016

The Raleigh duo of guitarist and singer Catie Yerkes and drummer John Meier, or Naked Naps, have never been more bracing, nervy and good as they are on the new eight-song entry, The Middle. The music is minimal and basic, with elementary indie rock that suggests the Up Records heyday of acts like 764-HERO. Yerkes, though, is a dynamo, delivering loaded observations about and gripes with the world in a voice that sputters, coughs and soars. These songs balance agitation and attraction well, beckoning you in even as they storm off. —Grayson Haver Currin
