Power-pop favorites Ultimate Fakebook release their first full-length album since their seven-year hiatus. Daydream Radio is Smiling Static is a collection of lost recordings from 2000-2003, and to make their comeback known, their tracks are being offered for free via www.ufbrocks.com.

UFB fans rejoice! They are reemerging with the sounds of early Elvis Costello and combining the rowdy spirit of the Replacements, so whether it’s your first listen or rekindling you prior obsession, Daydream Radio is a perfect introduction to Ultimate Fakebook; 16 originals, one cover (Guided By Voices ‘Echoes Myron)—a rollicking, giddy salute to making music on your own terms.
