Nashville trio Cheap Time just released their new album, Exit Smiles, last week (11/26) via In the Red. Produced by bandleader Jeffrey Novak, it's sneering, snarling punk not too far off early-'80s-era The Fall. (It's quite a bit like The Fall actually, a good thing if you ask me.) You can stream the whole album (via SPIN) below.

Cheap Time have just announced a Winter Tour that will hit NYC with two shows: February 22 at Union Pool and February 23 at Mercury Lounge. No sign of advance tickets for the UP show, but tickets for Mercury Lounge go on sale Friday (12/6) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednedsay (12/4) at noon.

All dates are listed, along with the album stream, below...
