No Age hands out free song 'Glitter' from new album, 'Everything in Between'

We’re told that No Age’s forthcoming third album, “Everything in Between,” represents “bold step in their creative evolution,” which is really saying something, given how bold the Los Angeles art-punk duo sounded on their coruscating debut, “Weirdo Rippers,” and the equally awesome follow-up, “Nouns.”

What makes this new record so great? The usual things that separate creative artists from fame-hungry hacks: Dean Spunt and Randy Randall have gotten a little older, learned a few more things about themselves and packed a little more life experience into their worldviews. It shows on “Glitter,” the free song from the album. It’s a skillful balance of taut musical hooks and jagged, staticky noise that sounds controlled, but just barely.

In addition to its availability right here as a free download, the song is available in 7-inch and 12-inch formats, each of which is backed with a different non-album tune: “Inflorescence” on the 7-inch (you can stream the song here) and “In Rebound” on the 12-inch.

“Everything in Between” is due Sept. 28 on Sub Pop.
