Listen: Free Pizza brings the euphoria to your dance party

Jamaica Plain party animals Free Pizza knows how to do three things: rock, eat pizza slices, and party. It is no surprise then, that the band has chosen to inspire us with a playlist full of songs to “make your personal dance party more euphoric.” Sometimes dancing by yourself can be a bit lonely, but luckily Free Pizza has the prescription for the perfect aural lubrication.

Free Pizza has become one of Boston’s garage-hopping party-punk heroes, and today, via the local BUFU Records, the band is releasing its new album, properly titled, “BOSTON, MA.” For a band that learned quickly to not take itself too seriously, Free Pizza seriously knows how to lock into a jam. While thematically, the band tackles the simple joys of talking with babes over the internet and sharing good times with good friends, sometimes it will get a bit sentimental too, whether it’s recounting the introspectiveness of watching ducks fly south, or feeling like a foolish victim of love. The most burning track on the album, however, comes with the reckless closing title track, which provides an ode to the city in which Free Pizza constantly brings the thunder. You can listen to the “BOSTON, MA” in its entirety right here right now on the player above, and look for cassettes, available this week at the BUFU website.
