No Age - An Object

Los Angeles dream-punks No Age are dropping a new album called An Object in a couple of months, and we’ve already posted their early track “C’Mon Stimmung,” maybe the most straightforward banger they’ve written since “Everybody’s Down.” “No Ground,” the second song we’ve heard from the album, is a similarly charged-up anthem with a serious guitar riff and little in the way of digression. Nobody’s going to confuse it for a Pennywise song anytime soon, but it definitely raises the intriguing possibility of circle pits and walls of death at future No Age shows. Listen to the track at NPR.

An Object is out 8/20 on Sub Pop.

  1. Between playing live with Keith and Chuck as No Flag and that side-project C.R.A.S.H. EP, I was fully expecting No Age’s next album to be their reiteration of ’80s hardcore, and thus far, I think that’s a pretty astute prediction. What I like about this is the minimalism guitar and bass lines, though, which sounds like an extraction of just one person flailing in the mosh pit and not a whole floor of people.

  2. Stereogum, where every song is an “anthem” and the points don’t matter. Great song, though.

  3. Great opener. Love the prickly guitar lines added throughout. Anyone else feel like Dean recorded his vocals while suffering a stomach cramp for the album?
