The Evaporators Release 'Ogopogo Punk' LP, Share New Drake-approved Video
Published Nov 15, 2016After recent run-ins with the likes of Lil Yachty and Insane Clown Posse, Nardwuar the Human Serviette is returning to his musical day job as the frontman for the Evaporators. The band have just dropped a brand new album titled Ogopogo Punk.
It's streaming digitally right now, but is also available on coloured vinyl through Nardwaur/Mint Records.
The new record hears Nardwuar reteaming with John Collins, Stephen Hamm, Nick Thomas and Shawn Mrazek to deliver a new set of songs that cover everything from "shaving, mohawks & dreadlocks, eating to win, the mythical landlocked monster the Ogopogo, Skagit Valley's Chuckanut Drive and a whole lot more."
The final track on the album arrives courtesy of Brother Ali, who offers up a tribute to the band's frontman, aptly titled "Nardwuar." In a statement about the contribution, Brother Ali said:
I've had the pleasure of being interviewed and featured in some of the most incredible publications but the most entertaining and interesting interview i've ever had was with the one and only Nardwuar. During our interview he gave me the original program to a Muhammad Ali exhibition fight in Vancouver and several records. First thing I did when I got home from the tour was listen through the records and make a beat from one of them. I ended up recording this song. Doot doola doot doo...
You can hear that song and other eight hilariously awesome new tunes that proceed it down below.
Album opener "I Can't Be Shaved" has even been treated to a music video, complete with an intro from Drake. You can check that out below, as well.
