No Age are by far our favorite band from the LA DIY art-punk scene. Dean Spunt and Randy Randall came into this scene back in 2005 as No Age (they were formerly members of Wives) before releasing their debut Weirdo Rippers back in 2007, on FatCat label. Since then they've moved to Sup Pop, released their masterpiece Nouns in 2008 (which made it all the way to our top 2 of that year's list) and are now back with a new release titled Everything In Between, which will be out on September 28th.
The first thing you notice on the new album is how much more accessible it is. The band has obviously decided to polish their tracks a bit more as opposed to the raw noisy feeling of their previous album. Having said that, don't except to hear them on your everyday radio or bar yet, since they're still way to noisy and abstract for the everyday listener. It seems that they lean more to shoegaze than lo-fi punk on this one, for which we have mixed feelings. Their personal sound is still quite distinct, yet in some tracks we'd like a bit more noise and dirt added. Then again, this will probably allow them to reach a wider audience. To be honest, I need a bit more time on this record to cast a more certain view. I certainly like it (that's for sure), yet I still need to decide if it can compete with their Nouns masterpiece or not. Take a peek to the Life Prowler video teaser and also to their track Inflorescence below, which is going to be a b-side to their first single Glitter, and give us your view on it!
