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.

DJ Switch has spun his way out of the club and onto the radio with Friday afternoon's "Beats for Lunch" program on KVSP-FM 103.5.
 
Program director for Perry Broadcasting Terry Monday said Switch's weekly show is an outlet for local unsigned talent and gives airtime to good mixes.
 
INSTANT STREET CRED
Tired of the same old scene, Monday thought that DJ Switch was exactly what his station needed.
 
"Younger kids don't know classic hip-hop," Monday said. "Switch's skills blew me away."
 
Switch said this is not your ordinary Oklahoma radio show, but a blend of good, funky hip-hop, mixed together live on air, with only two turntables and nothing but vinyl.
 
"This one guy wanted to take me to lunch after hearing me just once," Switch said. "It's amazing street cred after 30 minutes of show."
 
HAVING STANDARDS
"He goes from metal to Eighties New Wave, then to old-school funk, and then around to new-school hip-hop," DJ Shorty-P said. "The first show he spun, I stayed in my car and ate my lunch to listen to the whole thing."
 
Switch said that he just wants to play good music. 
 
"Just because it's new doesn't mean that it's good," he said. "You can show me your tits all you want, but I'm not gonna play 'Gold Digger."' "Joshua Michael Torres
