L.A. duo No Age are back with People Helping People, which will be out September 16 via Drag City. This is the first No Age album entirely produced and recorded by the band’s Randy Randall and Dean Spunt. It was started before the pandemic in their studio space of 10 years, but then finished in their new studio space, Randy’s Garage.
The first taste of the album is the closing a track, “Andy Helping Handy,” an ethereal instrumental that recalls My Bloody Valentine’s more ambient work. Drag City note the song is not indicative of the album as a whole. The video features footage of Andy Warhol and you can watch that below.
No Age will also be on tour this fall, with DREAM_MEGA, Syko Friend, John Wiese and others joining at various points. There is currently no NYC show on their schedule, but they are playing other East Coast shows. Stay tuned, and their current tour schedule is listed below.
