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.

Kyle Reid & the Low Swinging Chariots - “When I Was Young”

Every artist should be the star of their own creative life, which makes Kyle Reid’s steps out of the shadows of the many ensembles and supporting roles he has played in Oklahoma bands over the years to front and center on stage feel like a just journey.

Despite being a tabloid fixture thanks to a short-lived engagement with socialite Nicole Richie, modesty is the name of the game for DJ AM.
 
"I am not famous," he said. "I am just a DJ and have not done anything worthy of having that title in my book. It does make me feel self-conscious when people are staring and not dancing. I am not much to look at, so I think they should just dance."
 
BLAZING TRAILS
SKKY Bar resident DJ, DJ Motion thinks DJ AM is very important to the DJ scene.
 
"He has set a new standard/style," Motion said. "With AM in the spotlight, club owners can now see how important their DJ can be to the club."
 
Not one to do many mix CDs for release, DJ AM " née Adam Goldstein " is the frenzied type who prefers on-the-fly and in-the-club mixing.
 
"I will do in Oklahoma what I normally do," said AM, with 10,000 songs to throw down at a moment's notice. "I always cater to the crowd, but if they only want country, I'm fucked." "Joshua Michael Torres
