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.

Music Made Me: Chase Kerby

The singer-songwriter and Defining Times frontman shares five albums that have proven instrumental in his own music career.


Music

Joshua Boydston
Nick Drake, Pink Moon (1972) 
I first heard this album in 1999 on a Volkswagen Cabrio commercial. The next year, when I became a sophomore and was old enough to drive, I remember cruising around on warm nights by myself, listening to that album while being completely lost in thought. His ability to do so much with so little is what had me enthralled from the moment I pushed play.
