Boomkat Product Review:
This EP features four all-new songs from Californian lo-fi scene leaders No Age, whose lead track marks something of a change of direction for the band. In addition to the almost Deerhunter-esque effects-laden textures, the production values seem to have reached a new high, rendering everything in glistening, full-bodied clarity. While this comes as something of a departure from the spluttering fourtrack-recorded distortion of their prior works, it's a welcome step forwards. 'Genie' finds the band stripped of drums, strumming through a kind of weary shoegaze ballad, armed only with a few fuzzed guitar chords and a weary vocal melody. The second side, meanwhile, offers up the musical oxymoron of 'Aim At The Airport' - a kind of pseudo-ambient track with shades of Brian Eno's 'Another Green World' about it - against the formidable punk rock blast of 'You're A Target', a song whose break-neck awesomeness is comparable to 'Brain Burner' from the Nouns album. Highly recommended.
