Marty Anderson, as Okay, will be releasing his third album tomorrow on Absolutely Kosher, entitled Huggable Dust. And without playing shows or getting much hype outside of the record label, Okay has caught the ears of bands like Deerhoof and some incredibly impassioned fans.
Pretty much the only accessible material online basically exploits the fact that Anderson suffers from Crohn’s Disease, including one really insensitive article on a particular weekly (link intentionally excluded) and a Pitchfork review of Okay’s two debut records Low Road and High Road. And while that’s all (hopefully) well-intentioned, there is really only one point to all of this – that Okay is damn good. And with this new record, it’s bound to get around.
