MP3: No Age – “Glitter”

No Age

We’ll cut straight to the point on this one. No Age‘s “Glitter” is one of the rawest, messiest, most flawlessly imperfect songs of the year. It’s all here: love, self-loathing, alienation – the three dietary staples of the indie-rock food pyramid.

Taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Everything In Between’, the track screeches and squeals and stabs. The vocals are deadpan, subsumed under the weight of all the chaos. But in spite of it all, the refrain “Everyone is out to get you again, but I want you back underneath my skin” is about as determined as they come. There’s an ambiguous sense of hope, somewhere or rather.

It’s songwriting like this that makes the L.A-based, DIY duo one of the most exciting acts on the planet right now. Whether they’re making lo-fi skate punk or seething outsider pop, these guys cut deep.
