No Age

 

Today our Bottle Rock Napa Featured Band is No AgeNo Age is the duo of Dean Spunt and Randy Randall. Together they bring a fun side to music with vibrant energy and well written tracks. Their music can be described as anywhere between skater or surf punk, fuzz rock, pop punk,or  shoe gaze.  They set out with one particular rule in mind:” To write songs that we would be psyched to listen to”.Their songs are full of high energy, catchy melodies and create the perfect attitude, whether it be full of angst or rebellion or mood setting stabilizer.  

They currently have their new record An Object out on Sub Pop Records. Their songs take upon a life of their own and you can feel their influences rise to the top in each song. Whether you are capturing a punk vibe or the swirling guitars, you are captivated by the sound as it emotionally draws you in. There is something so ethereal about the vocals as they transcend the levels from shoe gaze to heavier strides. Their new album An Object was perfect proof all of their hard work as they performed, recorded, produced, and prepared and assembled the entirety of the physical packaging of it. With this attention to detail, you are able to really appreciate the passion that these two have in their music. I look forward to their performance at this year’s Bottle Rock Napa Festival.   Here is our quick band feature:

Renowned guitarist Marty Friedman has released a music video for the title track, Inferno which is off his highly anticipated forthcoming album. The album is set to release in North America on May 27th. The concept for the video was inspired by a television show in Japan and is where Marty resides. Marty explains more about the video, “The music video for ‘Inferno’ is an homage/parody of one of my fave Japanese TV shows, ‘Zenryokusaka‘ (‘Full Power Hill’). It’s a weekly five-minute show where the entire premise is absolutely nothing but a girl running up a hill. Each week a different girl, and a different hill. I am hooked on this show, and think it is genius in its simplicity and ever-so-slight sexual nature. It took me a while to explain the charm of the show to the video director, but I think towards the end of making our video together, he got it. It’s like many things that happen outside the culture you were born in; you either get it and it’s fresh or you don’t and it’s just weird.”  Check out the video here:

 

The song can “Inferno” is now available via Amazon MP3 and iTunes; and can also now be streamed on Spotify. The album  “Inferno” was recorded mostly in Los Angeles with engineer Chris Rakestraw (Danzig, Children of Bodom) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth). Featuring notable guest appearances and collaborations with acts including Rodrigo y Gabriela, Jason Becker, Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom), Dave Davidson (Revocation) and Danko Jones, the album features what FRIEDMAN describes as the heaviest and most intense playing and writing of his career. The iTunes digital pre-order includes instant downloads of both the title track and new song “Steroidhead,” while physical pre-order packages (including a smoke-colored gatefold LP) are currently on sale here: http://prostheticrecords.com/inferno/

INFERNO

So make sure to check out the video and get your pre-order in on the new album. We look forward to this new album and hope Marty comes to the US for a tour. He will kicking off a European tour alongside Gus G starting May 1 in Finland. Full dates and ticket links can be found ahttp://www.martyfriedman.com/.
