I’ve been into Wavves for a couple of months now and since discovering them (mostly just a him, San Diego’s Nathan Williams) I have been able to find at least a couple of new songs each week. The songs are coated with such a thick sludge of distortion that it takes multiple listens to catch what is really happening at the base of it all. Each listen exposes a little bit more of the wonderfully crafted songs underneath but most people won’t be able to make it that far. Most people will disregard these songs and this band. Most people will hate this music. Don’t be that person.

No Age’s album Nouns clocks is at just under 31 minutes. I cannot name another album that packs so much emotion, raw energy and beauty into such a short amount of time. Every damn song is moving. Errand Boy has been a particular favorite of mine since the beginning. The band works in slowly before destroying the song and leaving it hanging by a thread until eventually fading out entirely. It’s fucking perfect.
“With Passion It’s True.”
No Age are going to be one of the most important bands in rock. As I said in my last podcast, I believe No Age have the potential to impact rock music in a way similar to Nirvana. This band is doing something new and exciting and once they write music that is slightly more accessible the mainstream will catch on. Just.You.Wait.
