FYF has announced a free No Age concert in Los Angeles on July 21st.
The LA indie punk duo has been active since 2007 with the release of 3 full-length albums, and has been linked to the underground scene. They have been actually very helpful at turning The Smell, a downtown club, into a very influential place, and have received a lot of attention these last years with even some TV appearances.
A guitar-drums duo? So they are like some punk Black Keys? Much more distorted I have heard. But I had never had the chance to see them, so don’t know their music very much, but I have heard about their experimental side and especially the explosive energy of their live shows.
This is what Robert Christgau wrote about their second album:
‘Randy Randall and Dean Spunt come out of L.A. hardcore's DIY tendency, not its punk tendency. By inclination and personal history, they're avant-gardists, twentysomethings who believe there are "no limits on art or sound or anything." Like 2007's Weirdo Rippers, their second album deploys the noises guitars make when turned up to 12, with samples thickening the mix and Spunt's cymbals generating as much drone and buzz as Randall's guitar amp, and his drums even taking the lead once in a while. Since avant-punk often has more "limits" than its creators recognize, respect and then some to No Age for keeping theirs interesting. At living-room volume, Nouns suggests a Sonic Youth jam of two-minute songs, or My Bloody Valentine inhibiting serotonin uptake the vegan way. It even has hooks–and for the last three pages of its 68-page booklet, lyrics. The rest: expertly curated full-color photographs.’
‘Inhibiting serotonin uptake the vegan way’? It sounds so intriguing, I only half understand what it means,… So the concert is free, in the middle of July, at the Levitt Pavillon MacArthur Park.
