Bands #1: OK Go
OK Go is a band based in Chicago. I like their music for the energy as much as for the new cleaner garage band sensibility.
They’ve been around in the indie music scene longer than I’ve been following it, so they might not be news to everyone. I don’t know much of their older stuff, so I can’t give a comparison. I would liken their 2005 Oh No album to work by Franz Ferdinand or perhaps The Walkmen.
Sometimes you just gotta put on an album to dance around to. This will suffice just fine, thank you. It seems that they feel the need to demonstrate how well their music matches to just movin’ about, though. Below is one of a couple of videos they’ve made grooving to their own music.
