Aisha Eustache — Love & Addiction


Eclectic

Louis Fowler
These days, it’s hard to find that classically soulful R&B sound. With so many manufactured pop divas’ vocal trills and high-pitched squeaks masquerading as music, R&B sadly has become a vapid wasteland.

Nina Medley — Red Dirt Redemption


Eclectic

Louis Fowler
Bethany blues chanteuse Nina Medley is, if the title track of her latest album is to be believed, “worn out on the Delta blues” and just looking for some “red dirt redemption.”

Various artists — Support Local Heroes: Vol 1


Eclectic

Zach Hale
Now in its fourth season, the Lower Bricktown Live outdoor summer concert series has serenaded Bricktown patrons with live performances by some of the metro’s most admired musicians. The free event has risen steadily in popularity, offering a glimpse of our city’s ever-budding arts scene and an opportunity to enjoy a night on the town while supporting local artists.

Various artists — Reaching Out


Eclectic

Zach Hale
Like so many Oklahomans, the local music scene has responded with generosity and grace in the wake of last month’s tragedy in Moore. In the weeks since, droves of local musicians have banded together for benefit concerts and radio marathons to raise funds for the relief effort, and with extraordinary results.

Do you hear what we hear?

It’s that time of year for another Christmas album roundup. Shall you hear these on high or God rest ye merry MP3 player?

Good King Friday — Good King Friday


Eclectic

Matt Carney
The University of Oklahoma music department proved to be the intersection of a stellar symphonic-pop record.

Big Fresh — Moneychasers

This unconventional genre-swapper will delight fans of complexity, confuse proponents of a sonic status quo.


Eclectic

Jonathan Davis
If a capella; catchy, ska-infused choruses; or an intro bit that wouldn't be out of place in “Shaft” interest you, give Big Fresh a chance.

Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of The Police / Def Leppard / Van Halen

For the little rocker in all of us. Or at least those of us who one day hope for little rockers of their own.


Eclectic

Matt Carney
I am not a father. Nor do I harbor plans of becoming one anytime soon. I’d like to spawn a kiddo sometime in the next eight or more years, although the technicality of finding a lady nice enough to want to help me out with that is kind of a wild-card factor. Makes such things difficult to predict.

Steven Boone — Rockabye Baby!: Lullaby Renditions of The Flaming Lips

It works! But maybe only once, unless you've got an infant


Eclectic

Rod Lott
There are more entries in the “Rockabye Baby!” series than there are children in that Duggar family on TV, and I’ve lost count of both.

Monty Harper — Songs From the Science Frontier

Not your average kids' CD


Eclectic

Stephen Carradini
If adults dumb things down unnecessarily for kids, then Monty Harper’s not your average adult.

Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx — We’re New Here

A remix album that competes too much with the original


Eclectic

Stephen Carradini
I loved the earthy sound of Gil Scott-Heron’s poetry-and-music album “I’m New Here,” but I disliked the coldness of The XX’s “xx.”

Duke Garwood — Dreamboatsafari

Jazz/blues/noise with some acoustic stuff thrown in


Eclectic

Stephen Carradini
Bait-and-switch is at best a bummer and at worst offensive.

Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata — The Hills Are Alive

Fans of musicals or WTF head trips, rejoice!


Eclectic

Stephen Carradini
Cult movies. Some people can’t take them at all. Some people watch them once, marvel at them, and then move on. Some viewers fall into the cult and learn everything about it.
