OK Go - Oh No Review
by Eric Bodrero

OK Go is spontaneity at it's finest. Spunky guitars and high energy are the order of the day for this geek rock band from Chicago. Before signing to Capitol Records, they toured with and opened for They Might Be Giants, which is a perfect match. On Oh No, they continue their unexpected twists and turns, delving farther into power pop anthems and finely tuned sing alongs. This album has polished up the production a wee bit, but keeps the guitars fully in tact and jamming at top chaotic form. Some tracks are more disco in nature, some are rockers, but all are very listenable and enjoyable, and the whole album is very accessible and easily digestible.

If you're not familiar with OK Go, think Hot Hot Heat mixed with Fountains of Wayne, with a dash of Franz Ferdinand, which isn't all that surprising since the album is under the direction of Tore Johansson, the eagerly sought after super producer behind the Cardigan's and Franz Ferdinand's music. This is indie rock at its most fruitful, and I highly recommend a listen.
