No Age probably has more frequent flier miles than any band I’ve ever met. One of their most recent adventures took them to Taipei! With help from their frequent collaborators at Altamont Apparel http://altamontapparel.com/contributors/no-age/ the guys played at a skate shop as well as a proper show at The Wall. The fine folks that promoted the show have some video of both events as well as an interview which you can see here. The guys kept a pretty good record of the trip on the No Age blog.
No Age just came out with a really great new video for their song “Fever Dreaming” (also conveniently posted below). Not only is the video really, very great but, unsurprisingly, so too is the director behind it, Patrick Daughters. For a little look at how some of this greatness came to be, check out this behind-the-scenes footage that was put together to help answer the age-old question: “How the hell did they do that?”
Male Bonding stopped into the Sub Pop International Worldwide Headquarters of America (it’s where we keep our cubicles) and decided to put on a little fashion show featuring a few brand new shirt designs we just received.
Take a closer look.
Did you know that No Age, one of the many great bands currently recording for the Sub Pop label, have a new record called Everything in Between coming out on CD and LP on September 28th? Well, they do! And, not only is Everything in Between a huge step in the creative evolution of the band, a culmination of life-threatening and life-celebrating experiences, an album that reflects the process of moving through these experiences, emerging better off for the wear and tear; in short, a revelatory new No Age album, but the packaging for both the CD and LP formats is exceptionally handsome. The LP has a full-on 12″×12″, 48-page book integrated into the LP sleeve, and the mini-gatefold CD includes two attached 10”x10” fold-out posters. Both were designed by Brian Roettinger, the same guy who did the packaging for the previous No Age album, Nouns, and received a Grammy nomination for his efforts. They are both really nice, is what we’re trying to show you about.
So, now that you know about the amazing packaging for Everything in Between, No Age’s best release yet, you should know what else you’ll get with your pre-order. We made a batch of unique note pads featuring art from Everything in Between, and if you’re one of the first 500 people to pre-order the record, you’ll receive one of these. You’ll also get stickers, and access to a stream of the entire record so you don’t have to wait for your order to show up to hear this album. Here are plenty of links that will take you to places where you can buy things from us, and in one case obtain free No Age-related things from us. Click away!
The new No Age album, Everything in Between, is due out September 28, 2010 but you don’t have to wait until then to get your hands (and, I guess ears?) on some new No Age music because we’ll be releasing two versions of their single “Glitter” in just a couple short weeks on August 24th.
The two versions are represented in a 12-inch and 7-inch format and while both feature the album track “Glitter”, each single has different, non-album b-sides (the 7-inch has one called “Inflorescence,” and the 12-inch has “In Rebound” and “Vision II”). But here’s where the not having to wait part really kicks in because we are streaming the entire 7" now and even offering a download of “Glitter” for you to have and hold (sonically, anyway) as your very own. So you can enjoy these tunes before you head over to their subpop artist page and pre-order yourself a copy to have and hold (physically?).
