Fever Dreaming (Album)
Label: Sub Pop Records
Only three years following their debut, No Age are becoming old pros. Though their aesthetic has noise and saturation ingrained in it, they have a way with a catchy hook. Everything in Between is punk music for kids bred on movies -- the distortion is cinematic in its post-rock drone on instrumentals "Katerpillar," "Dusted" and "Positive Amputation," while "Shed and Transcend" is like Pink Floyd's "Run Like Hell" running like, well, hell. The bigger hooks come in tracks like "Glitter" and "Skinned," which employ a Cali-pop coolness to disguise the self-conscious lyrics within.
