LISTEN UP: FIDLAR

FIDLAR

By now, you’re probably well versed in the art of trouble-making. You know how to shot-gun beers in under ten seconds, covertly slap subversive stickers onto innocent street signs, and give the finger when it matters most (like when you’re getting your head-shot taken, obviously).

But whatever level of hooliganary you’re operating at, it probably cannot compare to the antics of LA punk band FIDLAR (an acronym for Fuck It Dog, Life’s A Risk).

What we have here is a rowdy group of guys who have been chronicling their hard-partying behavior via song for a couple of years now, and by the looks of it, they have no intention of leaving the fast lane and taking up crochet any time soon.

Most recently, you may remember FIDLAR opening up this past summer’s FYF Fest, or you may have heard about their personal rendition of “Oh What a Night” at the  Cha Cha Lounge in Silver Lake.

And now, on January 22nd, with the help of Mom + Pop/Wichita Recordings, FIDLAR are finally releasing their first self-titled full length LP, featuring some oldies but goodies and some new tracks to tickle your fancy. The album probably contains your party anthem for 2013, with uplifting tracks like “Stoked and Broke,” and the procedural classic to rival Gym/Tan/Laundry, “Wake Bake Skate.” Here at the LA CANVAS studio, we’ve been favoring the band’s latest single “Cheap Beer.” Being natty-light drinkers ourselves, we can appreciate the message.

And be sure to catch the guys on January 19th, at the Constellation Room in Santa Ana before they head out on a tour of the UK.
