The Liars, No Age @ The Casbah, 2/21/08

While your band is Pro-Tooling away in a shitty rehearsal space, the Liars are occupying a creepy, The Shining-esque radio production facility in East Berlin and making records like 2006’s percussive, eerie Drum’s Not Dead. They’ve got a new(er) one out that I haven’t heard yet–I’m guessing most of the set will be devoted to it and Drum.

No Age is not a group I’m familiar with; the songs on their Myspace suggest a strange mating of Jane’s Addiction, Plastic Constellations, and Lungfish. Then again, music is essentially a Rorschach test–you interpret it based on your experiences and predispositions. For all I know, they were going for a “late Frampton vibe, but with a little Sly and the Family Stone for good measure.”
