Late in 2012 FIDLAR released a demo for a track called “Awwwkwaarrrddd,” featuring Kate Na$h. Now the band has revisited the track, shortened up the name a bit, boosted up the production and noise level for “Awkward,” which you can hear via SoundCloud below. The song is part of a Split 7″ with The Orwells, and can be purchased digitally here.

It’s not everyday you get to see a grown man humbled and pissed off enough to unleash a drunken bladder on just about everything in sight, including himself…once that wind kicks in. And it’s especially not everyday when that very man is Nick Offerman, aka beloved parks-director Ron Swanson, pissing to the tune of some rockin’ FIDLAR.
Released exclusively via FunnyOrDie; embedded below. Oh yeah, and (probably) NSFW.

Tune in to the Grantland 2013 Hot Summer Jam Playlist right NOW, because your post-July 4 weekend sad face is really starting to bum me out.
…and because both Smith Westerns AND FIDLAR feature on it.

Remember a few months ago we launched our monthly subscription service, Boombox? Well, since then our subscribers have been hand-delivered digital albums from FIDLAR, Wavves and Polica, have been offered exclusive access to singles from Polica, Beat Club, and Smith Westerns, and have received brand new digital EPs from Neon Indian and Kid Astray before any else has even had a look in… and Boombox is only just getting started.
We have a lot of exciting stuff up our sleeves for the rest of the year, and we wanted to give you guys a taster of everything we’ve been working on (because we feel selfish keeping it all to ourselves). Head over to our Soundcloud player to stream the first installment of what will be a semi-regular compilation series from Mom+Pop, this time featuring singles from Jagwar Ma, Polica, Flume, Neon Indian, Hunters, FIDLAR, Wavves, Kid Astray, Mikhael Paskalev, Beat Club, Animal Kingdom, Smith Westerns, Andrew Bird, and Lucius. Phew!

The wait is over. Last night, Wavves threw the curtains back and unveiled all the details surrounding their eagerly-anticipated Mom+Pop debut, Afraid of Heights. That’s the cover art up above. Heights is available for pre-order — in multiple configurations including pins, t-shirts, and Nathan’s long awaited Negative Dad comic — right here.
In other news, Wavves also announced a run of March and April dates with our very own FIDLAR. When we say that this tour is going to be insane, believe us. The bands will be playing in small rooms throughout the US. How small? We’re talking a pair of NYC gigs at Shea Stadium and Glasslands. Prepare to get kicked in the face and like it. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 1st. Get them quick.
Stream the album’s lead single, “Demon To Lean On,” here, and check out the tracklist and full run of dates below the fold.
