Audacity : Butter Knife

Fullerton, California’s Audacity have been plugging away at their particular brand of party punk for almost a decade now, and third LP Butter Knife, out now via Seattle’s Suicide Squeeze label, is proof that they have pretty much perfected the art. Having recently been asked to play the part of King Tuff’s backing band, it’s safe to say their contemporaries share that view but their reputation as one of the scene’s tightest, most professional outfits doesn’t mean they’ve lost their jagged edge; they may have left the garage they started out in, but the garage hasn’t left them, as the Weezer pop melodies and Replacements scuzz of tracks like “Hole In The Sky” (below) attest.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!

    Did you see the Hole in the Sky video? It is the epitome of smart and silly fun. You’ll wish you were there! Great band!!!
