If you love slacker punk funtimes, you should probably stream this record.
God, we love Audacity. We got heavy into them last year, when the Soft Pack hipped us to this California quartet for our uncapped series (you can watch that here, by the way). Well, on July 10 they're putting out a new record out through Burger and Recess Records, and it's a real doozy. It's called Mellow Cruisers, and before we say anything else, go ahead and press that funny little orange button down there.
This stuff is way better than the garbage that passes for West Coast slacker punk these days, partially because these guys can actually play their instruments. Right now two members of the band are playing in King Tuff, and are on a US tour through the end of the month.
Check out those King Tuff dates below, and be sure to pick up Audacity's new record tomorrow through Burger Records. Oh, and here's their new video for "Punk Confusion" to tide you over.
