On February 19th inc., brothers Andrew and Daniel Aged will share their ’90s R&B infused record, no world.
A few years back in a small basement in New York during CMJ, I found myself at a late night showcase. After a busy day full of bands coming and going, I was more excited to relax and grab a couple of drinks than to see even more music. For a while each song began to sound more like the last, and then a shy group of younger guys came to the stage. After their first song was over, my undivided attention was on them—as was every other person’s in the room.
That band was called, Teen, Inc. Years later, they’ve dropped the “teen” and are now simply, inc. Daniel and Andrew Aged are the masterminds behind the project, both former studio musicians (for a very impressive list of artists) who are coming forth and writing their own music. With a three song EP under their belt, the duo have been hard work since the winter of 2011 on their debut full length album.
Come February 19th, all of their time and effort will pay off as 4AD Records will release inc.’s album no world. The 11 song collection is full of smokey, hazy, vocals and clever production that showcases the brothers’ longstanding love for R&B and soul music. Comparisons to heavyweights such as Prince and D’Angelo come to mind.
As far as concerts go, inc. have only played a handful of dates in a handful of cities and they’ll hold to that pattern to help celebrate the new album.
They will travel to New York City to play a record release show at Le Poisson Rouge on February 19th, but prior they will stop in Philadelphia to play alongside Parquet Courts at the hipster dance party, Making Time.
