Captured Tracks

Naomi Punk, the thrashing sons of Olympia, Washington, don't just play their instruments; they pummel and maul songs out of them. The trio specialize in moments of meditative bliss found amid jerky noise, and their second album captures the full-throttle attack of their live show – dabbling in staticky feedback without drowning in it the way their 2012 debut, The Feeling, did. "Eon of Pain" amplifies tension with mantra-­esque chords, and "Rodeo Trash Pit" is the band's masterful eight-minute opus. Sure, the songs' formulaic stop-and-spurt attack can wear on the listener's ears after a while – but this is an album well worth risking tinnitus for.
