No Age

Tuesday, January 29

Consider them the antidote for your recent overdose of safe-as-milk indie rock. No Age, the punk duo from Los Angeles, have just enough hipster, Pitchfork, and art-scene cred to make them a success (well, that and they signed with Sub Pop), but they have more in common with the Xeroxed fanzines and SST compilations of yesteryear. At first blush, their style is spastic and charged. But they also possess an airiness suggesting shades of skate-punk and surf-pop. True, 2007 was the year of the indie, but it was obvious all along that everyone harbored secret urges to rock the fuck out. No Age will do just that in 2008. With Liars and Past Lives. BRIAN J.

Listen to a sample of No Age's "Everybody's Down."
