just a thought, really...
All recent hype aside, No Age is a damned good band. I have been really into droney, spacey, sludgy, fuzzy rock recently, and it appears that this sound is thriving across the globe. Take 2008 alone; there's been some great fuzz goin round.
Here's a sampling of some good fuzzed-out rock, drone metal stuff, and noise music from the year so far:
Earth – The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull
Times New Viking – Rip it Off
Boris – Smile
No Age – Nouns
Blank Dogs – On Two Sides
Fuck Buttons – Street Horrrsing
Goslings – Occasion
Natural Snow Buildings – Laurie Bird
Ocrilim – Annwn
All of these are good records, if you're into what they're selling, which not everybody is. Looking over this post, I have to wonder when I stopped enjoying lyrics.
