OkGo

Oh No
Artwork

OkGo’s second album for Capitol sees them turning to a more stripped down garage rock sound. Produced by Tore Johansson-the man behind the hugely successful Franz Ferdinand debut-‘OhNo’ cooly harnesses the weird traits of Weezer with retro garage pop. Where the likes of the dire LouisXIV fail in this game, OkGo more than hold their own as a result of some smartly penned tunes and a keen sense melody. The Stones-like ‘Do What You Want’ or ‘A Good Idea at the Time’ reflect the current garage scene, whilst the psychedelic first single ‘A Million Miles’ and the Chilli Peppers influenced ‘Let it Rain’ suggest that this album is more than just a vehicle for generic plagiarism. ‘Crash the Party’-a brash chant-along garage rocker-is yet another effective string to the band’s bow and re-iterates the fact that although OkGo are no heir to the throne of the Smashing Pumpkins, they are nevertheless the current kings of the Chicago garage rock scene
