Already well-loved for their three albums, YouTube mega-videos and ecstatic concert tours, OK Gos new 180/365 presents their latest breakthrough.
The first album to be wholly released by the bands newly established Paracadute label, the 15-song, 58-minute live collection reinforces the Los Angeles based quartets status as a bleeding edge, blockbuster outfit for the internet age. But just as much, 180/365 burnishes the reputation behind the reputation: a ceaselessly touring live act, refined into extra-psychic tightness by years on the road. Performing for well over a half-million fans during 180 shows through the course of 2010 - gigs that saw confetti explosions, marching bands, handbell arrangements, in-crowd performances, and other unpredictable joy - 180/365 boils OK Go to their ass-kicking, cant-miss essence.
Mixed by producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT), the 15 multi-track recordings will arrive housed in another first: the gorgeous Tronpak, a unique and environmentally friendly eco-packaging direct from Norway. Packed with rare and unseen photos, 180/365 is a must-have testament to the endless possibilities of the blue skies ahead.
