No Age on Lamar Pedestrian Bridge (more by Leia Jospe)
As mentioned, No Age release their awesome new record Nouns today (and Pitchfork gave it a very high score) (and it is streaming at Spinner). And as you know, No Age play a show at Bowery Ballroom (again) tonight (May 6) with High Places and Fiasco (and No Age played a show last night for FADER).
"Even on a day when Nine Inch Nails have suddenly dropped a late Easter present of a surprise free album, No Age have completely dominated internet music-chatter." [Status Ain't Hood]MTV News recently did a feature on lo fi music. Bands they highlighted include Jay Reatard, Times New Viking, Tyvek, Psychedelic Horseshit, and of course No Age. Download a related, free mixtape HERE or just listen to the muxtape. Watch the MTV News video below.
Lots of other people have recorded and released No Age video too. You can watch No Age play in Other Music, watch them play ping pong with Vice, watch them play in Juan's Basement for Pitchfork TV, watch them play in that vegan food store, and watch them in their practice space. They also played in Amoeba Records and those videos are below (along with the MTV one).....

Fuck Buttons @ Mercury Lounge - May 5, 2008 (self-titled mag)
Elvis Costello's new album, Momofuku is at the top of my shopping list this week. Named after the inventor of the cup noodle, Momofuku Ando, the album is the strongest effort from one of my favorite singer-songwriters in years.
Even though the mainstream media is fawning over new albums by Clay Aiken and Neil Diamond (which is streaming at Spinner) this week, there are plenty of other worthwhile releases. From what I have already heard I can strongly recommend Animal Collective's Water Curses EP, The Long Blondes' Couples, Matmos' Supreme Balloon, The Morning Benders' Talking Through Tin Cans, Pattern Is Movement's All Together, and ((Sounder))'s Good Things Come and Go Like Bad Things.
What are you picking up this week? Are there any releases worth adding to the list?
Sub Pop is now confirming a lot of the rumors and then some.....

One of the most popular late-night parties (2am start time) at SXSW this year was the Friday night (Mar 14, 2008) No Age, Fucked Up and Brutal Knights show at Lamar Pedestrian Bridge (the same place Fucked Up played last year if I remember correctly). I chose to get sleep sleep Friday night so I could get an early (and happy) start on Saturday, but Leia and Ryan both pulled all-nighters. Leia's pics are in this post .......
No Age @ Food Fight Vegan Grocery (sachiko-no!)
No Age will be announcing many more dates soon, but in the meantime tickets are on sale for the show they're playing at Bowery Ballroom on May 6th. They recently played Warsaw and The Market Hotel. More dates below....

the crowd @ the Market Hotel - Feb 11, 2008 (CRED)
Sometimes you leave a show and feel like you've witnessed something special. Such was the case for me at the No Age show at Market Hotel in Brooklyn last night. The place was packed, and unlike the show they opened for Liars @ Warsaw, this crowd was absolutely insane. From the very first note to the last, people did not stop dancing, swaying and slamming into each other. The music was fast and loud - the way punk rock is supposed to be played. Every song was performed with intensity and heart.
The space itself was also great - one of the most fun venues I've been to, though cold. After entering through a barely-noticeable door on a side street, you walk up a STEEP set of stairs. The triangular shaped performance area gave it an amphitheater like feel with the stage at the narrowest part and a wooden bleacher structure in the back. Lit only by a few candles and dim lights, the Market Hotel did a great job at setting the mood. The bar is in a separate room in the back, and that was tight and filled up quickly. The major complaint was the lack of heat, but everyone (myself included) seemed to forget about that problem once No Age took the stage.

No Age - a week or two ago (NOTGL)
Saturday night's Liars and No Age show at Warsaw did not disappoint (Feb 9, 2008). No Age opened the show and set the tone. They played a mix of songs from their ep's, Weirdo Rippers and tracks from their forthecoming album on Sub-Pop called Nouns. Jumping off of speakers and playing in the crowd, No Age set the bar high. The place was packed, and when Liars came out, they fed off all the energy in the room. Due to his back injury, Angus remained seated for a lot of the night, but he did occasionally stand, jump, and wave the Polish flag. The crowd was attentive.
At 6-foot-somethingorother, Liars front man Angus Andrew is a magnetic, kind of menacing presence. Even in a raspberry colored suit. While sitting down. [Sound Bites]Liars @ Warsaw, Broooklyn, NY - Feb 9, 2008 (sssour)
The new Liars material rocked live! And luckily (like the rest of the tour up until then), the New York show went off without a hitch. Philadelphia was not as lucky though. Angus declared during their set Saturday night, "We're canceling tomorrow," and then Liars sent out this bulletin on Sunday...

Liars in Portland, OR; 01/28/08 (P4K)
Not only has the Liars and No Age tour gone off without a hitch, it has finally reached NYC! The two bands will play Warsaw on Saturday and No Age will headline a show at Market Hotel on Monday with High Places.
“We thrive on the strong visceral power of the audience. Being face to face with a crowd can sometimes make me want to eat them. I look forward to that opportunity on this tour," says Andrew. "I also am eager to play some of the songs on our new album that we’ve left wanting. In all I anticipate the whole tour being shambolic, psychotic and historic. A winter wonderland of weirdo rockers."All dates below...
No Age played a show with Deerhunter @ Shangri La in Brooklyn last night (Oct 22, 2007). No Age also played a show with Deerhunter @ Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday night - that one was the Windish CMJ showcase, and that's the one I was at, and that's where Jefferson took the pictures you see in this post....

Remember how the Dan Deacon NY Magazine scavenger hunt thing was cancelled? Well, now they're doing it again, but different for Halloween with Chromeo & Kudu, and at Judson Church on October 30th. Tickets are on sale, and there's more details below....
BUT FIRST, it's also worth nothing that in addition to the Dan Deacon & Deerhunter show that is happening on October 17th at Bowery Ballroom, Dan Deacon is playing an Impose party at Silent Barn on October 16th, and Deerhunter is playing at a TBA Brooklyn venue on October 22nd (with No Age who is also playing that Bowery show). All tour dates below....
After getting numerous recommendations to check out California's No Age, I finally did, and so far I like what I hear. Further research revealed that Stereogum, Pitchfork, Crackers United, and Deerhunter all like them too.
No Age are Dean Spunt and Randy Randall, two young heavyweights from the LA skate/art/punk underworld - a super-talented noise pop two-piece, who decided to put out five limited vinyl-only releases via a variety of DIY indie labels across the globe (namely UTR, Deleted Art, Teardrops, Youth Attack, and Dean's own PPM label). In August, FatCat will release Weirdo Rippers, a collection of highlights from these releases. Despite its multiple sources, the tracklisting for Weirdo Rippers follows a narrative of its own, with the songs traversing a wealth of sonic territory, ultimately cohering effectively as an album.The album is out August 28th on Fat Cat. Their last NYC shows were in June (one for Todd P @ Silent Barn, and another at a movie screening in Manhattan). I'm hoping to catch them for the first time at CMJ. All tour dates below....
