Mumblr is taking us into their creative psyche with the release of the jam-packed B-side compilation Foster Kids. The record features some odd ins and outs of the band’s three-year recording history, all demonstrating its ability to, you know, have a hell of a time making music.
In less than a week Mumblr will be out on the road for two months of “family fun, beer, beach, sand, sun” as they tour around the country in support of June’s The Never Ending Get Down LP.
