Last summer, South Jersey five-piece The Naked Sun stormed the World Cafe Live stage with a rousing set of rambling rock and roll tunes at the Beta Hi-Fi Competition. Since then, the band has played a bit more to the subdued side of the musical spectrum. A trumpet player and saxophonist backed up the group, adding to their richly-arranged new songs on this February '13 live session. The set draws mostly from their debut EP Space, Place, and Time.

Repetition drives these songs. The rhythmic patterns lend themselves to the reality of our own existence" Read the review here
