T.I. — Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper T.I. has released Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, his eighth studio album and the first since his most recent stint in prison. The title is no doubt a reference to his legal troubles on federal weapons charges, but it also makes reference to the Marvin Gaye song of the same name, which is sampled in the album’s opening track.

Big Boi — Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper and one-half the legendary duo Outkast, Big Boi has released his new solo project, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. It’s far from a typical hip-hop album; every song has a different feel to it, sometimes even stepping outside of the genre.

Various artists — A Blackwatch Christmas Vol. II


Indie

Joshua Boydston
Fowler Volkswagen general manager Jonathan Fowler wants Oklahoma to become the indie Christmas-music capital of the world. With three straight stellar Christmas albums Fowler VW has supported (all but the first with Norman’s Blackwatch Studios), that wish feels more like reality.

Hinder — Welcome to the Freakshow


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City’s own Hinder is viciously derided even by butt-rock standards, catching just as much flak as Nickelback and Buckcherry, if not more.

Chud — Chud


Rock

Copperheads — Apocalyptic Behavior


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City’s Copperheads have remained relatively quiet this year — ironic, given that the punk outfit stands alongside The Boom Bang and Shitty/Awesome as the metro’s loudest rock bands.

Wanda Jackson — Unfinished Business


Rock

Phil Bacharach
You can’t keep genuine royalty from flaunting their power. Wanda Jackson, the 1950s’ Queen of Rockabilly who set the standard for rock ’n’ roll women and even managed to get Elvis Presley hot and bothered, is back with Unfinished Business.
