NO Age

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....
