Next big thing

As far as songs go, few prove as challenging to sing as our national anthem.

It’s a technically demanding tune from first note to last, to be sure, beginning with a low bellow that quickly soars toward star-punching high notes, eventually swelling to a show-stopping crescendo that even the most seasoned performer can have trouble mastering.

Neon colors

Utah-based rockers Neon Trees spent a hot summer night setting fire to Tulsa’s legendary Cain’s Ballroom on June 19. Rounding out the aural palette were Smallpools, a lively L.A. powerhouse, and Nightmare and the Cat, a cadre of black-clad Brit/American alt-rockers. Neon Trees’ latest record, Pop Psychology, was the night’s flux capacitor, transporting all who were willing to a neon-soaked parallel universe.

Breezy Burnz — Product of My Enlightenment


Joshua Boydston May 1st, 2013

Oklahoma City's own Breezy Burnz is tough to pin down, but that's half the fun of his latest mixtape, Product of My Enlightenment, a top-to-bottom solid effort that boasts a smattering of hip-hop complete with some of the catchiest hooks the 405 ever has seen.

While he recalls Odd Future and Childish Gambino ("Beautiful," "Rappin' Ass") in some moments, and Drake and Kendrick Lamar (the remarkably produced "Everything I Want," "Ask Me If I ..."), Burnz is very much his own rapper. He's a lewd and crude dude — cheeky at moments, more thoughtful in others — but seemingly most concerned with making good-time music.

Standout "Mardi Gras Party" is the sort of genre-blending, infectious fun you could slot right in between Shwayze's "Buzzin'" and Asher Roth's "I Love College" without skipping a beat. Where most rappers would come off uneven with Air Jordans on one foot and a sandal on the other, Burnz takes it right in stride. 

Product of My Enlightenment is available as a pay-what-you-will download at breezyburnz.bandcamp.com. —Joshua Boydston
