Review of No Age – An Object (Sub Pop / Outside Music)

There is a dark aestheticNo Age running throughout the newest record from Los Angeles lo-fi/indie rockers No Age. On An Object, the band strikes a fine balance between the tuneful and the abstract without allowing themselves to get mired too deeply in either direction. Although some of the tracks suffer from a lack of melody, the band delivers a few truly great moments including the fuzzed-out Lock Box. No Age delivers two of the albums strongest tracks with C’mon Stimmung and Defector/Ed, evoking the ghosts of Joy Division and The Ramones.
