No Age, 'Losing Feeling' (Sub Pop)

8
Losing Feeling
Critical Mass
Label: Sub Pop

by David Bevan

Not that long ago, No Age's recorded output sounded as if it were being captured in the middle of a wash cycle. But since 2008's Nouns, their debut Sub Pop fulllength, the eldest brothers of L.A.'s Smell scene have further embraced melodic punk soundscaping. Milking the quiet-LOUD dynamic a drop more, this four-song EP's title track morphs a gentle guitar bath into a fuzz-pedal masterpiece. But it's the hooks of squealer "You're a Target" that arrive in unexpected style: Dean Allen Spunt's creamy falsetto.
