They’ve already dropped a few crumbs from the forthcoming Everything In Between, but apparently No Age just now decided that releasing whole songs from the album wasn’t nearly coy enough, so here’s a trailer for the album’s opening track, “Life Prowler.” You get to hear a little over a minute of the song while watching a guy manually inflate the full-body latex gimp suit he’s wearing. You’re welcome. Seriously, though, all signs thus far point to this album being pretty great. Remember all those half-lazy/ half-right pieces last year about Brooklyn music having a banner year because Grizzly Bear, Animal Collective and Dirty Projectors all put out really popular albums? It seems like we can’t be far away from a slew of really similar write-ups about Smell bands. And rightfully so. But this isn’t one of those pieces. This is different. This is now a commentary on other music commentary, not the bands themselves. So just act accordingly, we guess.
This week, we’ll be hosting posts from The Tripwire, the FADER’s source for every awesome thing in rock. Starting next week, The Tripwire will become a weekly column on TheFADER.com, combining the latest music, news, interviews, haiku reviews, cheekiness and a fairly healthy amount of guitars. Stay tuned!
