Okara - Months Like Years - Spectra Sonic Sound Records 1996

Purchase Okara/Mothman 7"

Here is another interesting band from the mid 90's that got lumped in with the emo movement. Again, this sounds nothing like what emo sounds like today...thank god.
I saw Okara a handful of times back in the day,and I even released a split 7" on my record label between Mothman and Okara back around 1994 or 95.

Okara play a disjointed, slightly metal, slightly punk, slightly I don't really know style of music that is still impressive to me to this day. The standout track for me on this record is track 4, which actually reminds me of the band RODAN, so give it a listen and let me know what you think. Also, the lp has 8 songs but I ripped it from vinyl and have 10 tracks, maybe I tracked this thing wrong or maybe there are more songs than listed on the Lp. I really don't know but it plays back exactly as it was put to vinyl...Dave G.

I always liked this band. It was obviously from fans of the shellac and rodan stuff, but the drummer was a badass. I have the demo somewhere which has some great stuff on it too.
