2001, May / Geggy Tah
Into the Oh
This is Geggy Tah smarter, more musically confident, and yet still danceable, unpretentious, sparkling and pretty. Tommy Jordan's voice like fizzy pop: perfect summer listening. He and Greg Kurstin write earthy, funky tunes, embued with healthy lust (withness "Gina" and Into The Oh's "Sweat"). Occasionally Jordan himself even slips into the profound: "Dumb Submarine" is definitely the standout track, although "One Zero" and "Holly Oak" are excellent. "I'll Find My Way" is more Santana than Santana, but that's the most you can pin down their sound. And Jordan and Kurstin's lyrics are clever, prompting you to fumble for the CD insert.
