Okay Lindon is a pop band based out of Middletown, Ohio- a small town in the "middle" of the Dayton and Cincinnati music scenes. Starting out as a solo project for songwriter Dustin Smith, Okay Lindon has emerged to a steady cast of 4-5 members over the years. Blending a variety of styles, Smith and company have managed to craft their broad range of influences into a unified sound that is unmistakably theirs. Here's what critics have said about Okay Lindon:
"While their 2009 release Everything in Moderation showed exceptional promise, Rotating Dates is a quantum jump for the band in terms of songwriting, performance, and production.
From head to hilt, Rotating Dates is classic contribution to the Midwestern rock aesthetic: earnest songwriting framed by bare-bones arrangements that connect with raw immediacy." - The Buddha Den
"…a brilliant study in concision and minimalism within a pop songwriting framework….Smith excels at juxtaposing infectious pop tunes against introspective, melancholy lyrical themes."- Dayton City Paper
"…a collection of lush songs with tight arrangements and memorable melodies that should grab listeners on the fist spin" -Active Dayton
"an album filled with gems that are easy to relate to but aren’t reaching for a particular niche" -Cincinnati City Beat Magazine
"I have no category for this album... and I'm sure Dustin would appreciate that. It's just good music." -IWriteYouReadWeTalk
"Okay Lindon has that wonderful potential and likelihood of rising above the synonymous masses and becoming a strong player in the indie rock scene” -AnalogScene
