No Age - Nouns Spires That in the Sunset Rise - This is Fire These Are Powers - Taro Tarot

[Sub Pop; 2008]

No Age

Nouns

L.A.'s own Smell band gettin' bigger and bigger. Much more refined and smoother than "Weirdo Rippers" with a still raw, 90's alt feel.

Spires That in the Sunset Rise

This is Fire

Third full length album of the all female psychedelic folk band from Madison, WI. More complex and diverse progression from their previous albums with longer tracks.

These Are Powers

Taro Tarot

Crazy and creative new experimental album from Brooklyn based band These Are Powers. Clashes of syncopation and discordant vamps collide into a raw timbre for the more adventurous rock'n'rollers.
