No Age Bring “Eraser,” Free Health Care To Craig Ferguson

As reported, Randy Randall wrote us up a couple days ago and explained how he was asked to remove his Obama t-shirt before No Age’s performance on Late Late Night With Craig Ferguson. At that time, Randy mentioned it was supposed to air on 10/27, eight days before the election. Well, last night I stumbled… More »

New Zach Hill Video – “Stoic Logic” (Featuring No Age)

Zach Hills brings a lot to Marnie Stern’s This Is It….

New No Age Video – “Goat Hurt”

Dean and Randy’s blog isn’t just the greatest source for No Age tour photos and No Age-video critiques, it’s also the greatest source for No Age video premieres. As of today, anyway. “Goat Hurt,” which first came via the Dead Plane EP, gets a new clip directed by Mika Miko-member and fellow Smell denizen Jennifer… More »

New No Age Video – “Keechie”

More a creative use of leftovers than a proper video, Andy Bruntel’s pretty “Keechie” clip makes Harmony Korine-esque use of “supplemental material” from the “Eraser” shoot. It’s intended to be viewed together with Desmond’s fave. Watch it here (via GvsB). More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2008: Saturday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy

After a night of “classic” recreations, it was nice to dive into the current state of the indie landscape. Yesterday’s lineup was stacked, and we spent the day scissoring back and forth catching as much as possible, right through to Animal Collective’s relatively ornate light show to… More »

Weirdo Ripper

The “Oxford Comma” response was a pretty good start (“it would be funny if the train would run him over ’cause this song sucks,” never forget), but with this review of “Eraser” it’s official: We’ve found the Sexman of Music Video Review. More now please.

New No Age Video – “Eraser”

Last time we wrote about No Age, John Norris was interviewing them about the lo-fi scene. So not all that surprising the LA duo were invited to MTV to chat with Pete Wentz and debut the Andy Bruntel-directed clip for “Eraser.” It features lots of slo-mo running, balloons, and those colorful t-shirts everyone loves. FNMTV… More »

MTV Brings Lo-Fi To Whoever It Is That Still Watches MTV

It wasn’t too long ago that MTV hipped us to that crazy Brooklyn scene. Now, years after Guided By Voices, Shrimper cassettes, the Grifters’ One Sock Missing, Peter Jefferies, Harry Pussy, Sebadoh III, and Siltbreeze made “lo-fi” a buzz word amongst our parents’ generation, they’re teaching us youngsters about lo-fi via No Age, Times New… More »

12. No Age – “It’s Oh So Quiet” (Alternate Take)

No Age On “It’s Oh So Quiet”
“‘It’s Oh So Quiet’ is such an amazing song, played by what sounds to be a full orchestra. Dean and I being only two people had to approach it in a different way. We went more full guitar drums on it, just ’cause that’s what we had available… More »

New No Age – “Eraser”

Last night during Port O’Brien show at Pianos, the lead singer stopped mid-set to compliment Amrit on his No Age shirt. Yes, these dudes are huge. But also, it’s a great shirt. (Ask Colin.) So Dean and Randy find themselves with a much anticipated album on their hands, and here are the first sounds from… More »

New No Age – “Eraser” (& “Boy Void”), Live In Austin

It’s always fun watching Randy and Dean go to town with that special No Age oomph. How do vegans have so much energy? Regardless, the duo played our Saturday Volume party (from which we’ve also posted the beloved circuit benders Fuck Buttons and aerobically sound HEALTH), showcasing the warping “Eraser,” a new song from their… More »
