Ok Go - This Too Shall Pass
-------------It's been almost four years since the YouTube sensation "Here It Goes Again" treadmilled its way into our lives...then we sorta forgot about them. Until recently, I hadn't seen or heard much from the windy city band - Lady Gaga and the freshly revived pop queen phenomenon has formed a sort of drunken haze over rock music in general.
But the touring foursome haven't been beaten by the bad romance between rock and radio play. Ok Go are promoting a new album, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, and are catering to an electro-indie rock crowd who may see "Here It Goes Again" as a pop chart Grammy sellout. The album was produced by Dave Friddman, who worked with MGMT and the Flaming Lips (you can instantly tell where the influences came from). Still, it put them on the radar enough for me to shell out the cash to see them tonight.
