Jabee — Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
Few Oklahoma emcees have enjoyed the local spotlight that Jabee has. Thanks to his lyrical prowess and underdog mentality, the Oklahoma City emcee is quickly becoming appreciated by those outside the hip-hop scene as well as those inside it.

Search and destroy

Snotty rock outfit Brother Gruesome inspires shock, awe and a heavy dose of Destruction


Music

Joshua Boydston
“This is a diverse group of songs written in different times and places, but all of them are intended to be hard-hitting with a palpable emotional impact,” Jackson said. “The simplicity of it being (just) us two has allowed us the space and time to really focus on our tones and recording style.

Various Artists — A Blackwatch Christmas Vol. III (Holly-Tonk & Jingle Beats)


Indie

Joshua Boydston
Three volumes in and A Blackwatch Christmas yet again nabs a spot on the nice list, showcasing a smattering of Oklahoma artists with charming new holiday standards. This year shakes up the status quo with two themed halves — serving up dusty, countrified Christmas ditties on the Holly-Tonk side and soulful hip-hop carols with Jingle Beats, both with joyful returns.

Green Corn Revival — Bound for Glory


Country

Joshua Boydston
It has been a relatively rocky road for Weatherford alt-country outfit Green Corn Revival, which has seen its share of highs (acting as backing band for rockabilly icon Wanda Jackson) and lows before an (amicable) split in the road led half of the original lineup to forming Honeylark.

Colourmusic — A Very Special Colourmusic Christmas: Vol. 1


Indie

Joshua Boydston

Oklahoma is quickly becoming the indie Christmas music capital of the world, it seems, with yearly compilation albums featuring everyone from Stardeath and White Dwarfs to Graham Colton. So it makes sense that Colourmusic — freak-poppers hailing from Stillwater — would craft a full album of original, offbeat holiday tunes themselves.
