Oh-OK: Furthermore What [DB EP, 1983]
Last year's seven-inch Wow Mini Album comprised four toy songs totalling 6:42 in which two girls--definitely the word--with tiny little voices and sharp little minds dissected such subjects as sibling narcissism, personhood, and the impermanence of waves. This is a slight letdown, threatening to cross the line from unflappably fey to oneirically arty. But the Linda Hopper-Linda Stipe tunes allude to half-remembered melodies in much the same way the lyrical catchphrases do, and Georgia boys contribute Georgia guitar and Georgia drums. So in the end it's as charming and sexy as it intends, which is plenty.
