– OK Go, the band that made the Rube Goldberg machine music video and recently
had a public tiff with record label EMI over the ability for fans to embed said
video, has asked and been let out of its contract with EMI’s Capitol Records. The
band will now re-release its new album "Of The Color of Blue Sky" on
its own label, Paracadute Records. Singer Damian Kulash tells New York Magazine
that EMI was not funding the level of promotion the band desired, noting,
"The issue is that they just don’t have any money" — referring to
EMI’s public financing struggles.
