Folk fares better than rock


Folk

Stephen Carradini
Ever since Dylan went electric, folk and rock have had an uneasy back and forth relationship. Some who excel at one find they fail at the other. Some can do both.

David Lynch — Good Day Today/I Know

Enjoyable electronic tunes from David Lynch (yes, that one)


Electronica

Rod Lott
Modern cinema's reigning mad genius — David Lynch, of course — tries his hand at electronic music with a two-song EP entirely written, performed, produced and vocalized by the man himself.

Colin Stetson — New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges

Vastly unusual in an incredibly good way


Indie

Stephen Carradini
Some musicians want to make you dance. Some musicians want to make you rock. Some musicians want your money. Some musicians want to make you think.

Adios, muchacho

Let’s send off OKS veteran Stephen Carradini with some rad music vids.

And with that, I give you the song he loves more than most any in the whole, wide world:



Here’s one that buzzing across the blogosphere today: St. Vincent covering the heck out of ol’ Tom Waits. Astute fans of St. V’s (better known as Annie Clark) know this is far from the most exciting cover song she’s ever played. Also, she was born in my hometown and I have a Tulsa Driller-sized crush on her, in the interest of full disclosure:



Chapel Hill indie guitar legends Superchunk tossed a new/old video our way this week for the classic “Learn to Surf.” Let’s just say that their stage presence has neither increased nor decreased since 1998, nor have they apparently learned any new moves. How's that for consistency?



Not technically a music video, but it does feature OKC native Blake Griffin and former Sooner bulldozer Adrian Peterson, and is absolutely hilarious. That is, if you can stand Seth Meyer’s annoyingly glib grinning that introduces it:

Parker Millsap and Michael Rose — Palisade


Folk

Joshua Boydston
Fledgling singer-songwriter and Purcell native Parker Millsap builds quite a foundation with stand-up bassist Michael Rose on their debut, Palisade. From the sounds of it, a monumental career is in the works.
