Now You Know: Hargo

Hargo playing shows? “We’ve got, like, 30 bah mitzvahs lined up.”
Hargo playing shows? “We’ve got, like, 30 bah mitzvahs lined up.”

“Our whole thing is never doing the same thing twice,” says Eugene, Oregon, native Hargo Khalsa. “There are a lot of moods and a lot of energies on the record, and that’s something that we strive to do. Always change it up.”

Hargo, a four-piece band that has drawn comparisons to the Beatles, Beck, and Radiohead, re-released their five-track Faint Glow EP this April. The band sent out 500 promotional CDs in an effort to relaunch the group after a falling out with their previous drummer, which resulted in a brief hiatus. Ron Kerner has since taken over the traps alongside guitarist Sanjay Parekh and bassist/beat-programmer John Jolley.

The Faint Glow comes from a lyric on the first track, ‘Soul Survivor,’” Hargo says. “It’s about Tokyo in the year 3000 — people being stripped of their emotions and trying to rebuild them. Another song is about the pharmaceutical industry. There’s a strong theme of just being human, not a citizen of anywhere — a citizen of nowhere. The humanity we share is what really matters, more so than being down with the king, you know? I went to school in India for a while, and there is definitely an Indian influence in the music and the lyrics.”

The pending Out of Mankind full-length was recorded in New York in the summer of 2009. Hargo plans to release it this fall.

“We’ve been sitting on these tracks for a long time,” says Jolley, “so for our live material, we’ve been going in a more electronic direction. More experimental.”

“We’re just excited to get out and play as many shows as possible,” says Hargo. “We’ve got, like, 30 bah mitzvahs lined up.”
