The Flaming Lips — Playing Hide and Seek with the Ghosts of Dawn


Rock

Louis Fowler
The Flaming Lips’ latest cover album, Playing Hide and Seek with the Ghosts of Dawn, is a song-by-song remake of King Crimson’s 1969 classic, In the Court of the Crimson King. Naturally, it’s only available on hard-to-get, limited-edition colored vinyl.

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

Zach Hale
Chud doesn’t give a damn. Not for your folly, your lack of good sense, and definitely not for your ear drums.

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.

Lost Empires — Death and Evil Beasts


Rock

Joshua Boydston

Oklahoma is flush with Southern and hard-rock acts, but there’s a narrower selection of quality straight-ahead metal bands. Enter Lost Empires.

Shiny Toy Guns — III


Rock

Joshua Boydston
After an uneven presence following 2008’s hard rock-leaning Season of Poison, Shiny Toy Guns is back with its third release, appropriately titled III.

Other Lives — Mind the Gap EP


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Few things help a band out more than finding a big brother to help it navigate the treacherous waters of the music industry. Stillwater’s Other Lives has found its in Radiohead, for whom they opened on a recent tour.

Mind the Fox — Songs for the Needy


Rock

Joshua Boydston
It’s taken four years since Mind the Fox’s formation for the Oklahoma City rock outfit to finally offer a full-length debut album, but from the sounds of Songs for the Needy, it’s been worth the wait.

Two Snakes — Cut Them Down


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Who needs Red Bull, 5-hour Energy or a Thermos of coffee when you can consume Oklahoma City rock act Two Snakes’ EP, Cut Them Down, in less than 10 minutes? It plays like an adrenaline shot: quick, ballsy, addictive.

Cosmostanza — Rad Vibes


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Some music is meant to be studied — sat down with for extended periods of time with each subsequent listen revealing another layer to savor.

Fablecar — Fablecar


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Yukon’s Fablecar seems to have emerged from whatever year the Pixies and U2 would have crossed paths with David Bowie. It’s a big, ambitious, self-titled debut, one that stands tall more often than falling flat. Even the missteps are forgivable, as it’s refreshing to hear a young band take a swing at something wholly original.

The Walkmen — Heaven


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Few bands enjoy the steady acclaim that The Walkmen have, with each passing album stacking right up to the one prior. Heaven is no exception, sounding like a victory lap for an amazing career.

Jon Lyle Williams and the Bravest Retreat — Jon Lyle Williams and the Bravest Retreat


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Who doesn’t miss the music the ’90s brought? It was heartfelt, catchy, soulful and universally accessible — everything popular music isn’t now.

The SweetWater — Moonshine


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City rock act The SweetWater works for something wholly unique in its full-length debut, and while it’s a tall order to hone down influences as varied as Queens of the Stone Age, Black Crowes and Alice in Chains, the band does an admirable job of it with Moonshine.
