No Age's sophomore effort Nouns released last year show cased reasonable promise of the Lo Fi/Noise Rock duo of guitarist Randy Randell and vocalist/drummer Dean Allen Spunt based in Los Angeles, garnering critical acclaim and popularity worldwide.
The band is back, with a four song EP Losing Feeling. The EP starts off with the title track, a typical No Age rocker, divagating picturesquely and then, gaining unrestrained tempo halfway through the song. With the drums out of the picture, the atmosphere is mellowed down in ‘Genie’, focusing wholly on Randell’s strumming and Spunt’s vocals.
Thanks to Randell’s smooth and spacey use of the fuzz pedal, ’Aim At The Airport’ achieves to a respectable extent a certain melancholic ambience, that which was pioneered by the unhinged experimentation of Brian Eno and Robert Fripp thirty six years ago in the revolutionary No Pussyfooting.
The duo finally explodes into a tangled scream for freedom to tear itself loose from depression and blind-alley, close circuited rage in the post grunge standout ‘You’re a target', striking a memorable chord which they have not been able to do earlier in the EP.
No Age will be releasing a full length album this year. They could have utilized this EP to indulge themselves further in the aesthetics of experimental noise rock, which they really haven’t. The impression of this four year old band being promising remains the same and it's in good order that I look forward to their new album.
Label: Sub Pop
Year of release: 2009
