Oog Bogo are a four-piece rock band from Los Angeles and their
new album is Plastic-an electrifying set of songs and sounds
that just don't stop, working like a machine that makes joy and
endless flips and repetitions, whether in front of the turntable or
out in the real world.
In the past several years, Oog Bogo dropped two records
that previewed this explosion in wildly divergent ways: 2019's
"Oogbogo" EP (GOD?017) with wigged-out production, its contorted
fun house mirror images pulling punk, psych and new wave in and
out of focus in a chaotic procession of mutant tunes. 2021's "EP2"
radiates a starkly different vibe, as chilled-out guitar-pop tunes
conjure a flowing medley of plaintive echoes and atmospheres in
a mellow mist of hiss.
