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.

'I'm Amazed' by this band


Flick through shots of My Morning Jacket's one-night stand at Brady Theater.

By Matt Carney December 7th, 2011

Last night, OKSee packed up in the car and drove to that magical land of great concert venues and enormous QuikTrips to catch My Morning Jacket's two-hour-plus Brady Theater set. 

The band played 10 of the 11 tracks on its excellent new album, "Circuital," and touched on highlights from just about every one of its other albums. MMJ ditched "Run Thru"'s slow buildup, cutting right into the gnarled bass riff that's the gut of the song, lap-slid their way through "Strangulation" and completely blew the roof off the place with "Holdin' on to Black Metal."

Check out my photos and the setlist:



"Victory Dance"
"Circuital"
"It Beats 4 U"
"First Light"
"I'm Amazed"
"At Dawn"
"Wonderful"
"Outta My System"
"You Wanna Freak Out"
"Off the Record"
"Golden"
"Dondante"
"Movin' Away"
"Smokin' from Shootin'"
"Run Thru" (end part)
"Strangulation"
"Touch Me I'm Going to Scream, Pt. 2"
"Gideon"
ENCORE BREAK
"Wordless Chorus"
"The Day Is Coming"
"Masterplan"
"Holdin' on to Black Metal"
"One Big Holiday"
