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.

Radiohead - The Best Of


None June 19th, 2008

Capitol

To the band's protest, a two-disc collection of Radiohead songs has been issued by Capitol Records, which released all of the band's albums until "In Rainbows" came out last year.

The first disc has 17 of the group's most well-known and commercially successful songs, including early hits like "Creep"; "The Bends" favorites "High and Dry" and "Fake Plastic Trees"; and "OK Computer" tracks like "Paranoid Android" and "Karma Police."

The 13-song second disc features lesser-known, but still great songs. One highlight is "Talk Show Host," from the sound track to the 1996 film "Romeo + Juliet."

Because the act changed styles so much, this greatest hits collection sounds scattered, making for an irritating start-to-finish listen. The songs for the double album were chosen only from albums to which Capitol owns the publishing rights, so of course cuts from the most recent disc' which the contractually free band self-released' weren't included. But none of those songs would have landed on a "Best Of" album anyway.
