Audacity have long been paragons of California's lo-fi punk community. Way back in 2007, the quartet recorded their little-heard debut album, Juva Jive, which got some test pressings but never saw wide distribution. Now, the nine-track effort has been rescued from record-crate obscurity and given a proper vinyl and cassette release through Burger Records and Cut-Rate Records.

Recorded when the band members were still in high school, Juva Jive closes with "Mode," a distortion-heavy heap of chugging power chords and blow-out-your-tape-deck snarl that ends with the snot-nosed compliment, "I like you in the morning / But I hate you in the evening." Listen below, and pick up Juva Jive through Burger or Cut-Rate.
