No Age are showing no signs of slowing down as they take on multiple projects, set amidst a summer tour.
They're working on a new EP, due for release in September. They're experimenting with a combination of atmospheric-cohesiveness, trying to make sprawling music that stretches out of bounds without taking it too far. They want to be both tight and sprawling, at the same time.
Then there's the full-length, as a follow up to Nouns, which is still off on the horizon.
More immediately, there's a tour with Deerhunter and Dan Deacon, culminating in an end of the summer show at ATP New York in which they'll play a set of Hüsker Dü songs. They're also playing one of the Explosions In the Sky 10th anniversary shows.
The Deerhunter and Dan Deacon shows sound promising, though, as they're working out the details of a whole performance that would join all three acts into one performance, rather than have everyone come up and play their own individual set.
"Yeah, we just had a long conversation with those guys, and we're looking to make it more of a seamless, single piece of music that all three bands perform in, and not as much of a round robin experience, where it's just one song from each band, one after another. We're looking to really kind of meld together the ideas that currently exist in one band's song, and then augment them, either by having other members play together or adding something new to the song that'll transition to another song. So you'll still hear Deerhunter and Dan Deacon and No Age songs, but they'll be boosted in a way by having other members play in them as well," said Randy Randall when speaking to Pitchfork.
