#22-NO AGE-Everything In Between (Sub Pop)

The LA fuzz guitar and lo-fi duo No Age have consolidated their career with a rock solid third effort, the second for the Sub Pop imprint, containing their most accessible and energetic collection to date without losing the DIY edge – although the shoegaze touch this time has a lesser role in their sonic equation. Comparisons with Dinosaur Jr. were everywhere, like J. Mascis’ acclaimed band, No Age are growing as artists, while avoiding being swallowed by commercial pressure or populists temptations of widening their growing legion of followers. ‘Everything In Between’ found them in top shape.

REVIEW 2008: TOP 100 SINGLES (100-76)


101-RICARDO VILLALOBOS-Enfants

Our favourite tracks of 2008 also suffered from the overall quality clash, even when the new digital format threaten with turning the traditional album into a thing from the past, favouring the track as the ultimate choice. Even so, the highlighted singles pale in comparison with other years’ offer, showing a noticeable growth in the presence of guilty pleasures that wouldn’t have classified in better times; hardest sounds were also on the rise.
Not everything was negative, though. The EP, as a way of compromising between the track and the album, seemed to be the chosen format among new acts that wanted to launch themselves with something more substantial than a mere catchy tune; the quality and number of them made us raise our hopes for a better 2010.

Nuestras canciones favoritas del 2008 acusaban también el bajón cualitativo general, incluso cuando los nuevos formatos digitales amenazan con convertir al tradicional álbum en cosa del pasado, favoreciendo la canción como elección ultima. Incluso así los singles que destacamos palidecen si los comparamos con los de otras temporadas, con un considerable aumento en la presencia de “pecadillos comerciales” que no hubieran llegado a clasificarse en tiempos mejores; los sonidos más duros también incrementaban su presencia.
No todo era negativo: el formato EP, a modo de compromiso entre canción y álbum, parecía estar en auge entre nuevas bandas que se presentaban con algo más sólido que un mero tema pegadizo; en tal número y cantidad que nos hacían concebir esperanzas de mejora en el 2010.
