SOTD: No Age- “Dead Plane” (2007)

I love the build ups on Weirdo Rippers (2007), No Age’s first LP (well sorta…). Everything is purposeful, in other words, I get exactly why they do everything, or at least I think I do. The anticipation, the quiet is made all the more exceptional when they finally explode into the heavier half of the song and include vocals as well. For a lot of artists, I can’t get into their build ups, they just seem to be creating dead space and wasting my time, which is probably not the case, but it seems that way. In any case, a great tune and this video perfectly captures it. Now, all I need is to get No Age to play in my basement…
