The Pretty Black Chains — Awakening

You’d never know that The Pretty Black Chains very recently used to be a Brit-pop band.


Music

Stephen Carradini
“Awakening” is proof that their tansformation into a Led Zeppelin-style rock band was as complete as it was swift.

VOTD: Tip of the ‘Spear’

Gentle Ghost gets gory.

For starters: How badass a song title is “Spearherder”?

I guarantee you the song and its new, blood-spattered video from Delo Creative match the furious, guttural tone the name suggests. Tyler Huskerson does his best Explosions in the Sky impression and Sethy McCarroll emotes in an impressive range of groans and grunts.

Also, it’s good to see Blake Studdard (he plays the keys and extra percussion on the right) back and rocking again after his old band, The Neighborhood, provided a spirited Norman Music Festival 4 set.

This installment in Delo Creative’s Be Nice To Your Kids series (BNTYK, for short) falls nicely in the category of Full-Scale-Apocalyptic Guitar Onslaughts. Watch:



Rumor has it Delo’s got another, gorier video on the way for a second new Gentle Ghost song. Tough to imagine it’ll top this, but I’ve got my fingers crossed. Excellent work all around, everyone.

From behind the scenes at his Oklahoma-based talent agency, Jim Halsey helped change the face of modern music. A new exhibition of memorabilia is proof positive.

Grooms — Infinity Caller


Indie

Zach Hale
Grooms may be based out of Brooklyn, but their roots are firmly entrenched in Norman. Frontman Travis Johnson — an OU graduate — is the project’s linchpin, one that underwent a series of lineup shuffles and a name change (from The Muggabears) before relocating.
