Artist: No Age Track: "Eraser" Album: Nouns Listen

Chris DeVille has compared this Los Angeles duo to local indie outfit Times New Viking -- and rightfully so. Like TNV, purveyors of the "shitgaze" sound, No Age essentially plays pop music interpreted with the aggression and love of noise usually reserved for punk and noise music. Take away the static and the in-your-face lyrics, and you're left with a cozy little number that could've been the B-side to something by Paul Revere & the Raiders or, more recently, The Shins.
