The Oohlas, 'Best Stop Pop' (Stolen Transmission)

Best Stop Pop
Critical Mass
Label: Stolen Transmission

by Kyle Anderson

By cosmic law, the drummer is always the least interesting guy in the band. But Greg Eklund, the former backbeat of Everclear, and the Oohlas' co-songwriter/guitarist (and occasional drummer), makes a compelling rebuttal with his new Los Angeles-based crew. The jangly, jittery "Tripped" channels Throwing Muses (lead singer Ollie Stone sounds more than a bit like Tanya Donnelly), and the fuzzed-out "TV Dinner" hints at psychedelia. Eklund doesn't churn out anything as good as his former band's "Santa Monica" -- but then, neither does Art Alexakis.
