Time Out Live: Nude Beach performs “The Witness” (Acoustic)

Nude Beach's 2012 breakout, II, was the kind of record that wouldn't quit: a rough-hewn straight shot of classic rock & roll that announced the Brooklyn trio as promising up-and-comers. It would have been very easy for the dudes to come back with a similar, circumspect effort: Instead, what they've delivered, 77, is a sprawling, 18-song double LP that rewards anyone brave enough to dive in. The expanded running time makes room for acoustic ballads and instrumental workouts alongside a bundle of energetic punk tunes. Frontman Chuck Betz visited the Time Out New York offices with new bandmate, guitarist Matt Winn, to perform an acoustic version of "The Witness."
