No Age 

Nouns (Sub Pop)

2160451.t.jpg

The second album by the L.A.-based punk duo No Age is packed with songs that are short, loud, noisy, simple, exciting, and catchy. It also pushes all the right nostalgic buttons and uses electronic flourishes as their foundation. In other words, it's an indie-rock hit. Yet for all of Nouns' post-Pavement minimalism, there are genuine songs here. Even the instrumentals resonate with equal shots of melody and effect. And when you play the album again, you'll instantly recall the hook-fueled tracks — all, except for one mammoth opus, clocking in at an efficient three minutes or less.
