WLUR review NO GO KNOW....


Tuesday, July 21, 2009
No Go Know
Add Date: July 21

Artist: No Go Know

Album: Time Has Nothing to Do With It

Label: The Union

Genre: Rock

Comments: Portland trio No Go Know are new to me, but this two-disc, 18-track release was quite a pleasant surprise. Indie label The Union Records, admitting that the length of Time Has Nothing to Do With It is "ambitious," adds that the band "has been compared to My Morning Jacket and Built to Spill." I can see the resemblance to early MMJ, or to Doug Martsch's poppiest record, Keep It Like a Secret. No Go Know probably could have scaled this down into a more manageable 12-song, single-disc set, but that doesn't affect the quality of the standout numbers, particularly "Love Is War," "End of a Stay" and "Christmas Prayer."
