Here’s a song from the new Audacity album. We’re pretty crazy about it:

Yuppies

YUPPIES – s/t

YUPPIES s/tBoredom. It’s all around us — in our classrooms, at the park, in our bedrooms, choking up our thoughts and actions like static on the TV screen. Disaffected youth toss cigarette butts into the streets in front of the local 7-11, spitting half-baked rhymes at passersby while their parents cower in cubicles, scratching their heads in the composition of a late-night email. Mid-level camaraderie congresses around the coffee pot at noon and there’s talk of prime rib and real estate and ‘the market’. In Omaha, Nebraska, no one knows boredom with more intimacy than Yuppies. In the summer of 2007, Jack Begley, Kevin Donahue and Noah Sterba came together very deliberately to end their boredom forever by performing punk rock live to a basement of kids who were bored just like them. With the addition of Jeff Sedrel on the bass in 2010 and a tour-heavy three years to follow, the rawness of their particular cut of rock n’ roll gristle was cooked through in the form of a self-titled debut on Dull Tools, a label run by fellow no-wave drill sergeant Andrew Savage (Parquet Courts). Vocalist Jack Begley forewarns listeners that we’re going for a ride, whether you like it or not, and nothing cures boredom like a swift kick to the gut and a crash test to the tympanic threshold. The sprawling, screeching manifesto to all that is death-proof in punk rock is recorded almost entirely in one take, lurching into song after song without ever skidding to a stop until we passengers throw the record out the window. It’s a flesh-singing, ball-tearing scrap of angular rock n’roll damage and it fuckin’ rules. Grip your copy of Yuppies through the label or check out their bandcamp next time boredom strikes, ’cause not all idle hands can work the blood and sweat out of an electric guitar like these Nebraskan devils can.
