With the world around us bruised and bloodied with teeth already dug into the concrete curb, we find ourselves with the shadow of a large boot looming overhead. What better time for No Age? They know how to ecstatically rage & power on through pain, because what else are you gonna do? The future belongs to the cockroaches, and their new record is made for the disparate band of misfits who 2017 couldn't kill.
'Snares Like a Haircut' sounds like the goods, and smells like the buzzy burning off of an aura, the marine layer suddenly vanished, leaving a thin layer of smog over the songs, simmering sock gazing tunes, revved and displacing enormous amounts of sound soil. With 'Snares Like a Haircut', No Age scrub the itch in the little moments, engage actively with the process and carve/plaster/shave something in an album shape that'll last.
Re-imagined rippers, compelling ever forward; something that provokes, challenges on the ear. That was always the goal, but after a few years spent not No Age-ing, just working on that thing called life, is it any wonder that Dean and Randy wanted to pump out some rock and roll for the black hole? Does time mean nothing to you? Don't answer that.
VITAL IDLES are Jess, Nick, Matthew and Ruari. In 2015 they leapt fully formed from the fertile intersection of Glasgow's visual art and music undergrounds. Their early live shows were a revelation, all ecstatic dancing and incisive tunes that betrayed an affection for the pioneering run of 7«s from the dawn of Rough Trade and the more pop slanted sounds from the worldwide DIY boom that followed. Following on from their excellent cassettes on Comfortable On A Tightrope and recent 7” through Not Unloved, look out this Summer for their debut album on Upset The Rhythm.
MIAUX is responsible for some of the most expressive music coming from the Belgian underground. Miaux is a mistress of elaborate keyboard shenanigans of a very soundtrack-like nature. Her music is soaked with a haunted, lonely quality that touches the edges of mystery like a torch. Armed with a Casio and some skilful song writing abilities, her music is minimal, melancholic and timeless. The Antwerp-based musician has released her ethereal recordings mostly via Dennis Tyfus’s essential Ultra Eczema label.
