Featured No Age stories

I don’t want to bum anybody out, but summer’s almost over. With an emphasis on almost, meaning anything can still happen (aside from reclaiming that unbridled feeling of summer’s start and infinite possibilities; we’re definitely in the zone of finitude, with all its attendant reminders of our own corporeal mortality, now)! LIVE IT UP! Really. More »

This week saw a of new tunes from heavy-hitters (Beck with guest Kim Gordon), comeback cuts from old favorites (the Dismemberment Plan, Mazzy Star), and an odd cocktail of indie rock and rap (Black Noi$e’s remix of Unknown Mortal Orchestra with Killer Mike and Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire). What reeled us in this week? Another cross-genre… More »

When Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation came out, I was four. As I got older and started actually caring about music, the album occupied a weird place in my life. I heard it and really liked it, and the more music I listened to, the more it made sense to me. But it was never my… More »

Check Out Grimes’ Rodarte Playlist Feat. The Cranberries, Roy Orbison, & J.Lo

There are a lot of different facets to Grimes and her whole project, but one of those facets is this: She is going to convince you, no matter how hard you might fight it, that pop music is awesome. To that end, she will confront you with the things you think you hate, and she… More »

Watch Stereogum’s Minutes Of BottleRock With No Age, Blues Traveler, Matisyahu, & More; Hosted By Gabe Delahaye

Back in April, we wondered if Napa Valley’s second BottleRock festival offered the strangest festival lineup of 2014. Headline sets from the Cure, OutKast, and Eric Church are not unusual, of course, but the rest of the bill promised a very curious mix of indie faves (TV On The Radio, Thee Oh Sees, No Age,… More »

BottleRock 2014 Saturday: OutKast And Weezer Deliver The Hits, No Age Open For Smash Mouth

Every now and then, it’s good to reorient your perspective. At any given more established or mainstream festival stocked with your usual indie mainstays, No Age wouldn’t come across as too out there or jarring, but between BottleRock’s semi-bucolic surroundings, laidback tone and pace, and generally more rustic or easygoing lineup (the band was playing… More »

Rat Fist – “Disrupt Yr DNA”

Rat Fist is a new band made up of No Age’s Randy Randall and Pissed Jeans drummer Sean McGuinness, and based on their new single, “Disrupt Yr DNA,” it sounds like they’re bringing together the best parts of their respective main projects. The raw aggression of Pissed Jeans is present via McGuiness, but with plenty… More »

Watch No Age’s Kickass Letterman Performance, “I Won’t Be Your Generator” Video

It’s hard for a DIY band to translate the urgency of its live show to a late-night TV setting, but credit L.A. art punks No Age with doing the best job I’ve seen any band do in a while. Last night on the Late Show With David Letterman, the band draped white sheets all over… More »

No Age – “An Impression” Video

Tomorrow, the hazy L.A. dream-punkers No Age return with their new album An Object, and one of its songs is a hazy float called “An Impression.” The two members of the band, Dean Spunt and Randy Randall, directed the song’s video themselves, and it’s an abstract series of images of hands and faces and piece… More »

Stream No Age An Object

It’s been almost three full years since the release of Everything In Between, the last album from great L.A. noise-punks No Age. The rollout leading up the the band’s fourth LP, An Object, has been pretty impressive; I’ve liked all three songs already debuted by the band: “C’mon Stimmung,” “No Ground,” and “An Impression.” AnMore »

No Age – “An Impression”

The new No Age song, you guys. It’s beautiful. It features a string section. Unlike our previous two listens of the forthcoming An Object (“No Ground” and “C’mon Stimmung“) it veers far clear of “straight banger” territory. “An Impression” is the dreamier, artier side of Dean and Randy, given space to breathe, emote, luxuriate. There… More »

No Age – “No Ground”

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 seriou… More »

No Age – “C’mon Stimmung”

The dreamy L.A. punk duo No Age have a new album called An Object coming later in the summer, and this morning, they let us hear “C’mon Stimmung,” the first song they’ve shared from the album. The track is a ragged, anthemic punk banger, and it’s one of the most straightforward and moshable songs they’ve… More »

No Age An Object Details

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… More »

No Age Blast Converse At Converse-Sponsored Show

L.A. punks No Age have long walked the uncomfortable line between punk rock and commerce — playing shoe company parties but making sure they also play DIY all-ages loft shows in the same cities, that sort of thing. But now they’ve apparently pushed that divide past the point of absurdity. During a recent Converse-sponsored show… More »

Beck, No Age, High Places cover “I Only Have Eyes For You”

“I Only Have Eyes For You” is a classic American song, a standard written in 1934 by Harry Warren and Al Dubin and most famously recorded by the Flamingos in 1959. And now a whole host of indie artists have recorded covers of the song for artist Doug Aitken’s installation “Song 1,” which comes to… More »

Did Kings Of Leon Rip Off No Age?

LA punks No Age posted the above left image on their blog today, posing the question, look familiar? Spin reports that it’s not as egregious as it seems — the shirt does not appear in the Kings’ online store — although Spin’s Google search found it on Amazon’s UK site. So, there’s something to this.

Bob Mould Tribute @ Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles, CA 11/21/2011

Both venerable bands were fronted by Bob Mould, and an all-star assortment of music luminaries assembled to celebrate the music and legacy of Mould’s vast catalog at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
