GO, THE: Fiesta: LP

Jul 24, 2013

The Go is a long-running Detroit rock band that boasts Jack White as an original member. Their latest, a twenty-song double LP with gatefold cover and delicious orange vinyl, uses Revolver-era Beatles as a jumping-off point for explorations of mellow, mid-’60s psychedelic rock. I hear some Kinks, Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, and Canned Heat, all given a backbone of warm bass and huge drums. The production is terrific, and the songs well crafted, but the whole thing feels clinical and overwrought. If I want to spend an hour with people who won’t let go of the ‘60s, I’ll turn to the Booming section of the New York Times.
