GOONS BE GONE, No Age's number 2 record for Drag City, kicks into gear, takes you out west and gets some dirt on it, with what's possible their most honed in and direct record yet. A guitar/drums duo (Randy Randall and drummer/vocalist Dean Spunt) with a penchant for self-recorded samples, No Age are mostly unconcerned with things like space or pause, and GOONS BE GONE is gorgeously thick -- a hazy, delirious expanse that's both comforting and disorienting. Opener "Sandalwood" begins and ends in murk, and in between Randall and Spunt sputter and twitch and pound, alternately revealing and concealing a sweet, taut melody -- such is No Age's agenda, burying an addictive little singalong in layers of effects and fuzz.
