Editorial Reviews

An Object, No Age's fourth full-length album, is hummable, political, recognizably rooted in underground rock, and informed by an aesthetic in which the relationships between guitar, percussion, and vocals become relationships between things. Again working with Grammy-nominated designer Brian Roettinger, the band prepared and assembled the physical packaging of An Object, fusing the roles of manufacturer, artist, and musician. An Object was recorded by longtime No Age collaborator Facundo Bermudez and No Age at Gaucho's Electronics in Los Angeles.

this is a great newer band that is clearly a fan of late 80's SST bands, ( husker du, sonic youth, dinosaur jr, minutemen) but they also have a motorik krautrock thing going on (neu!, kraftwerk) as well as a noise/dream pop thing (ride, my bloody valentine) to a lesser degree. not to say they actually sound like any of those bands, and i think dean spunt's vocals give the band a certain distinction.

this lp finds them in a more mid-fi sonic arena, less washed out and echo efx laden as "everything in between". my first listen through was kinda lukewarm. it was not the direction i thought they were going to take, sorta pulling back instead of upping the sonic ante as "everything in between" did. the next listened i totally connected with the record, it was like that first neutral listen secretly burrowed into my head and laid eggs and the second listen made them hatch (gross). understated yet catchy, this record has a very focused sonic through-line. i think the songwriting is very tight as well.

good stuff.

No Age stretches their sound. -no ground- I won't be your generator - an impression - lock box- Circling with Dizzy sound as they recorded live with their play on feedback and keeping a nice coherence for 10 songs.It seemed they had some scrapes of B sides but were to good to be B sides and take those sound scapes and make full songs into an album with them. Their sound was getting a bit dull to me but the fast pace go go is there but with experimental sounds added guitar riffs. It Adds more and they loose nothing in the new direction.
The album takes more than one listen but you get rewarded if you give it time.All the little jolts of sounds that pop out in each of the songs to my ears delight each time I heard something new. Some weird ambient art rock going on and a good experience.
Takes more than one listen their new sounds mixed with their older sounds gives No Age a good punch of of sound they needed.

I saw No Age in concert recently (more on that later) and afterwards decided to check out their new album. I was a big fan of the band's debut album, 2008's "Nouns", but sorta lost track of them after that. This is the duo's 4th album.

"An Object" (11 tracks; 30 min.) starts off with a fast-and-furious "No Ground", which reminds me of the Ramones. "I Won't Be Your Generator" is more traditional, if you can call anything done by this duo (Dean Spunt and Randy Randall) traditional. "C'mon, Stimmung" goes back to the band's punk roots, as does "Defector/ed". But after that, the album takes a left turns and becomes far more impressionistic and introvert, check out "An Impression", and also "My Hands, Birch and Steel" as well as the album's closer "Commerce, Comment, Commence". Somehow it all works. At just 30 min., this album clicks by in no time and you'll find yourself playing this again and again.

I saw No Age in concert at the FYF in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago. Live they are a full band, not just a duo, and they brought a loud, fantastic-sounding set that was filled with energy and fury. They played a bunch of songs from this new album, including No Ground, I Won't Be Your Generator, Circling With Dizzy, etc. (none of the slower/introspective songs from the album, you might notice), along with some nuggets from the past like Teen Creeps from "Nouns". A great set from an equally great music festival (it was my first time attending the FYF). Meanwhile, check out "An Object", you won't be disappointed.

Format: MP3 Music
Experimental punk is a tough sell. Punk, as a genre, is defined by its immediacy -- it's fast, it's loud, and it gets straight to the point. Los Angeles' No Age has been walking the line between their punk roots and experimental curiosity across four LP's now. Until now, the band has swapped back and forth between loud, aggressive punk and noisy soundscapes, but the band's fourth full-length record, An Object, attempts to combine these two binary models. It's possible that the duo have released an album that is too experimental for the traditional punk crowd, or too punk for the crowd that awaits Animal Collective's new releases with bated breath. Taken on its own terms, An Object finds the band creating new sounds while writing some of the best material of their career.

The experimentation on An Object is exciting. You'll get the impression that these two guys are really exploring the sounds they can make and what they can do within the punk genre. Most songs barely reach the three minute mark, so when No Age push into new directions, it's never in excess. The album is loaded up front with some of its more straightforward songs, and it isn't until the fifth track, "An Impression," that An Object becomes something unusual. The band plays with your expectations; melodies, structure, sounds, and lyrics are all potential facets that the band can tinker with. There are a few points where vocalist Dean Spunt sounds bored with what he's doing, and these songs are generally the more melodic ones ("I Won't Be Your Generator", "Running From A-Go-Go"). Even so, the songs are so catchy, it's almost excusable. The weakest link of the album is its mix - none of the instruments or sounds really stand out.
