    Ed Schrader's Music Beat Are Experimental Rock Chameleons

    Live and on record, Baltimore duo Ed Schrader's Music Beat--singer/floor Tom drummer Ed Schrader and bassist/singer Devlin Rice--come on strong, elemental, like a force of nature. On last year's album debut Jazz Mind (Load) and a smattering of splits and singles, a winning formula emerged: rudimenta ... More >>

    No Age Play Death By Audio Tonight

    They will play your House of Vans, serenade your New Museums, climb around your Bowery Ballrooms. But LA-based dream-punk brothers No Age always find time for the little people, headlining your skate shops, your auto-parts-store attics, your Market Hotel opening ceremonies (RIP).

    Q&A: Jim Carroll Of Unicycle Loves You On The Nature Of Failure, The Fifth Element, And Paying Tribute To Sonic Youth

    Anthony Dixon​Chicago's Unicycle Loves You is unabashedly a noise-pop band, but not in the (mo-fi) sense that Sisters, Japanther, Railcars, or early No Age jams are noise-pop. Rather, singer/guitarist Jim Carroll, singer/bassist Nicole Vitale, and drummer J.T. Baker author lo-fi indie-pop bang ... More >>

    Download: Making Friendz's Blown-Out, Hooky "Situation"

    ​ Brooklyn's Making Friendz is a self-described "punk 'n' b" dance riot, dragging the glittery disco blips of electro into the No Age age via euphoric, no-fi joymosh. Mastermind Tami Hart came here in 2005 from the same Cali scene that produced the mushy, expansive bluster of No Age, Abe Vigod ... More >>

    Week In Review: Kill Harvilla, But Get Belly To Reunite First

    ​It was the week White America lost its mind, as did the guy who wrote a song called "Kill Harvilla" and sent us both the lyrics (not bad) and the instrumental MP3 (very bad). But we here at SOTC prefer more constructive exercises, like listing every '90s band that hasn't reunited yet. A lot o ... More >>

    No Age's Dean Spunt on How His Band's Rainbow Logo Became a New Punk-Rock Icon

    "The idea was to have a visual identity before the band even started, before the music started. It kind of worked because people would be like, 'Dude, what is this? What is No Age?'" Radiohead's Colin Greenwood wearing the No Age "Classic" in January 2008 Dean Spunt's first band was a punk-rock ou ... More >>
