Autumn Tone Records will release the new album from the Chicago 3-member band,Yoko and the Oh No’s, planning the CD and LP releases for October 30. This band is interesting in that they are one of a few that mimic the late ’70s NYC indie styles of glam and abandon. And the lead singer is just graduated from HS. Looks like an early career start if they can maintain the interest. Check out the new album’s bluesy single video of “She Ain’t Mine” (below), and live footage of “James Baxter” from a Beat Kitchen club show (Chicago on Belmont). I’m impressed! And I like ’em!
