*[pitchfork.com] "Glitter" is about feeling alienated, which is a topic No Age have dealt with before. In the middle of "Teen Creeps", a shitkicking standout from 2008's standout-packed Nouns, Dean Spunt promises, "I won't end up like them at all". While that statement seethed along with the song's monolithic wall of guitar thrash, the first single from Everything in Between takes a more introspective tone. "I don't fear God/ I don't fear anything at all," Spunt sings, adding, "I've been wondering/ When is it my turn to get a win." There are no promises to be found here-- just the feeling that even if you could change your luck, you're ultimately powerless. The lyrical mood is uncertain, but the basic musical foundation of "Glitter" is classic indie rock, more so than just about anything we've heard from Spunt and Randy Randall to date. These guys aren't going soft, though: the underbelly of "Glitter" is all low rumble and screeching ambient noise, with only a few guitar stabs and stray tones acting as any sort of counter-melody. Even at their most accessible, No Age still sound punk.

*[FMQB.com] Neil Young will play a handful of shows this fall in areas affected by the Gulf Coast oil spill. Young has teamed up with his friend John Tyson, chairman of Tyson Foods, Inc., which will donate 100,000 pounds of chicken products to be distributed to the Bay Area Food Bank. Tyson will deliver four truckloads of chicken, the equivalent of almost 400,000 meals, to the Bay Area Food Bank, which serves Central Gulf Coast communities in Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi. Young is also asking concert-goers to bring non-perishable food items, which will be given to the food bank. All proceeds from the sale of unique, limited-edition Neil Young t-shirts, available only at the concerts, will also be donated to the food bank. The four shows are in Panama City, FL (9/20); Biloxi, MS (9/25); Mobile, AL (9/26) and Pensacola, FL (9/28). Young has two additional shows slated for Florida in late September as well.
