Em and the MotherSuperiors — Churches into Theaters


Rock

Joshua Boydston
As titles go, Churches into Theaters is an apt descriptor for the debut album from Oklahoma City rockers Em and the MotherSuperiors. It’s a reverential record, one that shares the gospel of classic rock, blues and soul but embraces the need to refashion it for modern times, channeling The Dead Weather, Grace Potter and Cage the Elephant along the way.

Oklahoma Cloud Factory — Ancestral Ghosts


Indie

Joshua Boydston

There’s a cinematic quality to Oklahoma Cloud Factory’s debut album, Ancestral Ghosts, one that indie-bent folk-rock outfits always seem to be grasping at. But thanks to a fun set of sonic idiosyncrasies, OCF lands on a different terrain than that of Band of Horses or Lord Huron.

Parker Millsap — Parker Millsap


Folk

Joshua Boydston
Parker Millsap’s debut album, Palisade (which we named the Best Oklahoma Record of 2012), wasn’t like most debuts, sounding more like the product of a grizzled 40-year-old folk hero than that of a 19-year-old kid just months removed from high school.

Mon — Goodbye September


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City emcee Mon is a rapper at heart, but there’s a singer-songwriter in there too. His self-aware Goodbye September plays like an open diary of slinky and saddened beats ready-made to emote over and pour into.
