C.O.C.O. play funky dance music, as does their lumberjack-soulman-boss Calvin Johnson, with an unselfconscious swagger that wears its anti-hipster lameness like a faded black t-shirt, not to mention on instruments that won’t be rendered useless when the power goes out at the house party (although their propensity for dub fadeouts might get lost with the lights out). Olivia Ness and Chris Sutton are a rhythm section in no need of melodies. It’s what all the Olympia kids are dancing to these days, and with any luck these rhythms will sweep the nation and set basement parties afire from coast to coast.

  1. Wanted to tell you all about this little internet radio station I found – LuxuiaMusic.com. Not really on the indie tip – they play all sorts of weird, obscure, beautiful vintage sounds from deep in the musical underground – but very worth checking out. For the next two weeks they're focusing on the sexier side of their sound (you've got to hear it / see it to believe it). Check them out at LuxuriaMusic.com
