Listen In: Audacity Made You a Playlist

September 24, 2013 | Andy Cush

Listen In” is a weekly feature in which we ask musicians to curate a mixtape-length YouTube playlist of songs they’re currently digging.

This week’s playlist comes from the California punk band Audacity, who put together a mix heavy on raggedy, melodic three-chord rock, along with head-fakes into ’70s R&B by the way of Danny Pearson’s “What’s Your Sign Girl,” so-dumb-it’s-great outsider pop punk, and Justin Timberlake. Click the big play button above to hear the whole playlist, and scroll down to see and play individual songs.

Butter Knife, Audacity’s latest album, arrives October 29 on Suicide Squeeze.
