2011 release from the Chicago-based Alt-Rock band. Distractions combine the detail of Arthur Russell and the sentiment of Bill Callahan on a Scott Walker-sized stage of weird. The effect of band leader Tom Owens's baritone voice, starkly contrasted by the noir pop that surrounds it, is that of a jarring blow. At once opaque yet ornate as a church spire, Distractions' melodies smolder while songs to confront the listeners in unsettling altercations that they only remember the next morning.
