MOSTLY true actually. But No Age are at least one exception. The noises they've created by messing around in the studio actually happen to be quite rich and interesting. Have u heard Nouns?

Oh, and nobody mentioned Japandroids! Though I'm not sure they really fit in with the rest, as they're more of an outright explicit garage punk band. They just record it noisy. They also benefit from not being pretentious at all, which seems to be a problem with a lot of these other sh!tgaze bands.
