“Tripped Out Before Scott” by No Age
No Age release their new album People Helping People on September 16, via Drag City Records. The album finds the brothers acting on their disparate desires and operating in perfect sync; telegenic weirdness fused immaculately to classic rock propulsion, transforming the energy pouring out from their hands and feet with electronics. Ensconced in Randy’s garage without a clock to spit on ‘em, Dean and Randy composted drums and guitar and life on planet earth into a stream of miniatures, vignettes and reembodied images – an infinity of hits and glisses.
The latest single, “Tripped Out Before Scott”, pushes deconstructed drum beats out onto the pulsing surfer waves – a gnarly day at the beach! Dean’s lead vocals bring the Love, while Randy’s overdriven arpeggiation summons the ocean’s bottomless roar. More of a sophisticated pogo than an outright punk song, but with the same love of sunshine pop ditties gliding beneath the waterline.
