self-titled

The debut CD from the Texas-based speeding or shyness includes scattered allusions to lyrics from artists as varied as The Beatles, The Smiths, and Hank Williams which collectively help to emphasize where the band is coming from musically: everywhere. From punk rock to acoustic delta blues--and with a healthy dose of western twang along the way--speeding or shyness seems to have combined the disparate musical pasts of its members to create a CD that sounds completely "new," yet is deeply rooted in the traditions of American music. For starters, try the haunting, threadbare version of "I Hate the Capitalist System" (an old protest song from the coalmines) or the raucous bluegrass-meets-punk-by-way-of-early-Camper Van Beethoven cover of the X classic "The New World." In the end, speeding or shyness will win you over with originals: from the honky-tonkin' steel guitar of "Goodnight Loving" to the lonesome wail of "Delta," a tribute of sorts to Robert Johnson. Like the rugged, sparse beauty of the desert mountains that the band calls home in the tiny Far West Texas town of Marfa, speeding or shyness is probably not for everyone, but treasured by others.
