Two years after releasing their second, self-titled album, Atlanta's dinge-psych revelers Gringo Star are back and ready to party. Having just released the digital edition of Floating Out to See, the band's third album and first on their own My Anxious Mouth, Inc. label, the Gringo boys now set their sites on a full east coast tour and will release Floating on vinyl and CD sometime in November. This release also marks the first album that was produced, engineered, and mixed by the band itself, which lends a spontaneously curious vibe to the band's sound. Tracks like "Going Way Out" (streaming below) and "Find a Love" take a fuzzy, sunny pop route that bobs along with spacious chords and drifting carelessness while keeping the band's tried-and-true barroom mystique. It's a vibrantly callous take on psych pop perfectly suited for pre-winter jams. Check Gringo Star's tour dates after the jump and stream Floating Out to See in its entirety via Consequence of Sound.

3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
Their fees were onerous, to say the least. $16 per ticket for "convenience," and it's…
That poster is for the Iggy Pop show on March 11 1983 @ 688 club…
