EVAPORATORS, THE: Ogopogo Punk: CD

You may know Vancouver’s Nardwuar the Human Serviette as an interviewer who goes above and beyond in researching his interviewees. The Evaporators are like a Canadian Dead Kennedys with no edge and this record is no different. Ogopogo Punk is heavy in the keyboards with polka-inspired rhythms and has the goofy approach you’ve come to expect from the still-standing British Columbia classic. I’d prefer to watch Nardwuar’s interviews, but this record is probably the sonic equivalent of that, so that’s fine. –Theresa W. (Mint)
