Fans of LA punk rejoice: No Age will release their fourth album on Sub Pop Records on August 20th. It's called An Object, and will include artwork from the band and designer Brian Roettinger. Lucky for us, the new No Age album An Object is available as a full album stream right now at NPR Music, who calls it “30 minutes of music that seethes stubbornly when it could have far more easily opened up at full blast and stayed there.” They also add that An Object “hammers and wanders while keeping one eye on upsetting and upending expectations. Fortunately, the other is invariably trained on something artier, airier and farther-reaching.”
No Age do their take on a Summer beach song with An Impression, a song that's definitely more slowed-down and at-ease than their usual punk anthems. "C'mon Stimmung" is a sharp little song, decisive and direct in its attack.
The album was "produced by No Age and their long-time collaborator Facundo Bermudez, who recorded tracks on their Weirdo Rippers LP (2007) and toured with the band in support of Everything In Between (2010), are meant to be grasped, not simply heard. Whether in the fine grit of Randall’s sandpaper guitar scrapes on "Defector/ed," or Spunt's percussive stomp and crack on "Circling with Dizzy" and "An Impression," created largely through the direct manipulation of contact mics, these are songs that pivot on the sheer materiality of music-making," according to the press release from Sub Pop.
