L.A.’s No Age will release An Object next week, the experimental / punk noise duo’s follow-up to 2010′s Everything in Between. Streaming now on NPR Music’s First Listen, An Object is a bit of a departure from No Age’s earlier efforts in both sound and presentation. Songs like “Lock Box” and “Defector/ed” are rooted in the grungy punk days of Everything in Between, but instead of an all-out, 30 minute thrash fest, there are many moments of melodic and delicate beauty that, together with the brashness, reflect the mission of the album to be an exploration of dichotomies (analog vs. digital, tangible objects vs. intangible elements). No Age will play PhilaMOCA on September 7th with Perfume River; tickets and information can be found here. Stream “An Impression” below and listen to the full album here.
