Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

Admirals - Amidst the Blue

Sometimes it helps to not be very good.

Some of the best albums and artists were born out of happy accidents owed to varying degrees of early suckage — the perfect note or chord for a song found by missing the one you are aiming for, failed mimicry of an idol bearing something entirely new and great instead.

Kierston White - Don't Write Love Songs

The Tequila Songbirds have become just as beloved as about any group around these parts. And how could they not?

Featuring a revolving cast of the Sooner State’s most badass female performers, it’s a power hour of some of the best songwriting coming out of central Oklahoma. Sure, they might not technically be family, but they are clearly a band of sisters all the same, bonded by the same brand of whiskey running through their veins.

Depth & Current - Dysrhythmia

"Overproduced" is a term thrown around all too indiscreetly nowadays, usually applied when the thing that sticks out about a song or album is how it sounds rather than how it is constructed. Yet some of the most compelling albums ever crafted embodied a certain aesthetic that was just as skillfully and meticulously put together as any Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record — which is to say production is as crucial to our enjoyment of music as much as anything else; it's also the most overlooked.

Weak Knees - “IceBevo”

Indie rock has been in a good place as of late. Not caring about being cool is the new cool, and a couple of dudes on guitar, bass and drums can make catchy, earworm songs without being armed to the gills with computer software and vintage synthesizers.

Nashville Pussy doesn't want to be taken seriously

Blaine Cartwright, lead singer and guitarist for Nashville Pussy, said, "I consider us a pretty juvenile band. Mature means better to some people; to me, it's just like maybe you're starting to be boring."

Atlanta's Nashville Pussy is far from boring. If anything, the band goes out on a limb to produce interesting testaments to deep-fried Southern rock, where sex and drugs are applauded in song.

"I'd hate anyone to take us seriously. That would be kind of scary," he said. "They'd be crazy anyway to take us seriously."

CURRENT TOUR
On its current tour, Nashville Pussy plans to stop in cities that the band rarely sees, including a stop in Oklahoma City.

"It's been one of those places that we don't want people to think we're avoiding it," Cartwright said. "I'm from a small town in Kentucky, and I know what it's like to have bands not come to your town, and I look forward to coming back (to Oklahoma)."

NEW ALBUM
Fellow members " drummer Jeremy Thompson, bassist Karen Cuda and lead guitarist Ruyter Suys " are in the process of working on ideas for a new album tentatively to be released in 2008.

Suys is also Cartwright's wife, which he said is a rewarding experience.

"It's better than having to call home and get in trouble for things she thinks you're doing," he said. "Now she can just see what I'm up to and get mad at me there in person." "Bryan Mangieri
