Indie

Joshua Boydston
Few indie bands have had the impact on current music that The Postal Service has. Even fewer have done so with only one album.

Prettyboy — Dejvická


Pop

Joshua Boydston
It's always nice to see someone come into his or her own skin. With Dejvická, Prettyboy — the new moniker of Norman singer-songwriter Jacob Abello — does just that.

MilitantxMindz — #RIOT


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
It's odd that in this hyperpolitical cross-section of American history, the voices of socially conscious rappers à la Public Enemy or A Tribe Called Quest are being drowned out over the sound of poppin’ bottles, smackin’ booties and the jangle of diamond jewelry.

Breezy Burnz — Product of My Enlightenment


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City's own Breezy Burnz is tough to pin down, but that's half the fun of his latest mixtape, Product of My Enlightenment, a top-to-bottom solid effort that boasts a smattering of hip-hop complete with some of the catchiest hooks the 405 ever has seen.

aDD it up

In rapping about the positive, Oklahoma City’s aDDLib has cracked the equation for hip-hop success.


Music

Joshua Boydston
aDDLib hasn't starred in movies, and you probably won't find him in a production of Riverdance anytime soon, but that doesn't mean he's not a triple threat. A talented rapper, studio artist and graphic designer, aDDLib — the moniker of lifelong Oklahoma City resident Dewayne Butler — is quite the total package.

Taddy Porter — Stay Golden


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Stillwater rock outfit Taddy Porter must have been blissfully ignorant of the sophomore slump that’s taken down so many bands before it. Stay Golden not only matches the group’s 2010 self-titled debut, but exceeds it in about every possible way.
