Distractions - EP

The Loved Ones make it easier and easier to love them with each release. Though it could be looked at as cheating to stuff half this EP with cover songs from such well-regarded artists as Billy Bragg, Bruce Springsteen, and Joe Strummer, it could also be viewed as simply smart and in good taste. The Loved Ones have the necessary confidence to take on songs from these guys, and lucky for them, their rough-and-tumble punk is a perfect match to channel the spirit of their influences.
