So check out "Uninspired" in the replies (or the band's AP.net profile) and hang out with the band.
Update: The teaser video for the album is now in the replies.

Ladyfinger (ne) will release their third album Errant Forms on Saddle Creek next week, but why wait until then to listen? You can now exclusively stream this upcoming album on their AP.net profile.

So go take a listen and let us know what you think! If you like what you hear, make sure to grab a copy of their LP, which is limited to 500 copies, here. Enjoy.

In other news, it looks like Frank is performing at The Grammys.
You may remember Kut U Up from Riding in Vans with Boys, a documentary about the band's opening stint on the Pop Disaster Tour with Blink 182 and Green Day. (Spoiler alert: drunken hilarity ensues.)
