OK Go – Upside Out (2014) “Hungry Ghosts”, the first new OK Go studio album in four years, drops in October, but the waiting it’s almost over and till the new album, we’ve got a 4 track EP to hang on to. It were quite long 4 years, OK Go and their fabulous third album, “Of the Blue Colour of the Sky” made me re-evaluate the indie/alternative rock scene and it’s still one of my all time favorites albums. I just can not delete it from my mp3 player. It’s like Led Zeppelin “III”.
Anyway, if you’re anxious, you can contribute to their Pledge campaign of fund raising for the production of the new album.
Meanwhile we had a cute Extra Nice Edition on double CD, a live album (180/365, 2011), The Compleat 12 Months of (Rare, Unreleased) OK Go and a few killer videos. And while I just mentioned their incredible videos, they delivered a new one: “The Writing’s On the Wall”, so, let’s take a look! (more…)

Ok Go – 180/365 (2011) In my list of “10 best albums of 2010” one was “Of the Blue Colour of the Sky” by OK Go. These guys rocks. They wrote some great songs, they are funny and full of life. Made a few killer videos. Not too many bands have now days their energy and ability to deliver quality stuffs. Actually OK Go were the exception, as I said, I’m pretty sick lately of anything labeled “indie” or “alternative”. Damian Kulash (lead vocals and guitar), Tim Nordwind (bass guitar and vocals), Dan Konopka (drums and percussion) and Andy Ross (guitar, keyboards and vocals) delivered a new package consist of the album and a volume of gorgeous OK Go tour photos taken by Nathaniel Wood. 180 gigs in one year, resumed in 15 great songs.

OK Go – Of the Blue Colour of the Sky (2010) extra-nice-edition-2cd-2010 Despre OK Go şi acest „Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky” am scris în data de 20 ianuarie şi atunci, la primele ascultări cred că i-am subapreciat. Mi-a plăcut materialul şi atunci, dar ca foarte puţine discuri din ultimii ani, „Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky” s-a lipit la propriu de mp3 playerul meu, săptămâni la rând l-am tot ascultat şi re-ascultat şi de-a lungul anului am revenit la el în repetate rânduri.
Am păţit cu OK Go cam ce am păţit cu Kings Of Leon şi al lor „Only By the Night” anul trecut.
Piesele de pe albumul „Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky” toate au farmec, au şarm, au câte un cârlig, infuziile şi reflexiile diferite prind o culoare aparte în interpretarea, re-interpretarea şi viziunea celor din OK Go.
Această ediţie „extra drăguţă” conţine (more…)

OK Go – Of the Blue Colour of the Sky (2010) M-am „împiedicat” de acest „Of  the Blue Colour of the Sky” lansat pe 12 ianuarie pur întâmplător. La prima „atingere” mi-au amintit de The Cars (1976-1988) şi Fisher-Z (1979-1987), puteam să amintesc eventual de mult mai celebrii Duran Duran, dar probabil sunt eu relativ sărac pe felia aceasta de muzică. Vocea lui Damian Kulash uneori aminteşte şi de Prince şi chiar şi unele formule mai Funky-Pop amintesc de acesta, dar dincolo de paralelele inevitabile pe care chiar şi involuntari le facem, OK Go sunt chiar…ok. 🙂 – Redy to go?
Nu prea mi-am făcut temele legate de ei, tot ce ştiu este că s-au înfiinţat din 1998 şi mai au două albume:
”OK Go” (2002) şi „Oh No” (2005), pe care nu le-am auzit.
M-am întâlnit cu o piesă de-a lor pe Sountrack-ul (more…)
