No Age, Total Abuse, Rene Hell

Monday, January 10, at Sons of Hermann Hall

No Age's third LP, Everything in Between, is a big, beautiful racket. Drummer Dean Spunt and guitarist Randy Randall create crashing, expansive layers of sound that make No Age sound like a quintet instead of a duo, with the help of loads of screeching reverb. The music is propulsive—even urgent—but not so unruly that it bowls you over in a confusing, meaningless blast of noise.

Actually, despite all the fuzz and feedback, songs like "Glitter" and "Common Heat" are solid and hooky, sometimes touchingly emotive, and always firmly defiant.

"I don't fear God," Spunt sings on "Glitter." "I don't fear anything at all."
