The followup to 2010’s Everything In Between, No Age’s An Object, “demands to be considered as a whole.” Which is to say, in an age of music’s ethereal digitization, Dean and Randy are choosing to make a tangible thing for which their credits include having “performed, recorded, produced, and prepared and assembled the entirety of the physical packaging.” (Let the record show that they’ve always been savvy operators on the visual tactile side of things; at least Kings Of Leon seemed to think so.) The guys made the record with Facundo Bermudez at Gaucho’s Electronics in L.A., and according to Pitchfork’s citation of its press release, in addition to their usual guitar/drums melange, An Object features “4-string bass guitars.” The record’s out 8/20 via Sub Pop.
