A bone to pick with Sen. Josh Brecheen


Letters to the Editor

Amy Briceno
One needn’t be the sharpest tooth in the hound to imagine why you, Sen. Josh Brecheen, would advocate repeal of SB 1712. I suspect one only need follow the money trail. I’d be willing to bet you have a friend or two with “puppy mill-itis.”

Rock the baby

Edmond rapper Josh Sallee is on the bill for Saturday’s “Rock-a-bye-Baby” benefit concert.


Music

Courtney Silva
Performing for a good cause is something in which Bobby Reed believes. His band, The Guilt Racket, will play along with four other artists in “Rock-a-bye- Baby,” a benefit concert to raise money for the March of Dimes, 7:30 p.m. Saturday at The Conservatory, 8911 N.

MPFree

Free music for you from The Rapture, Laura Gibson and a bunch of artists in ol’ Norman-town.

Economy — “Winter Recording Fiasco”
I have no idea what Economy is, nor anything more about the “Winter Recording Fiasco” than what the musical collective posted to its Bandcamp page, but judging by that information, it’s the Zanzibar! Records folks exploring their weirdness.

These songs are droning and creepy, pulsing with what sounds like bass keyboard and rhythmic lyrics like “keep the species alive.” They’re also topical enough to title a song after a certain dictator of North Korea, recently deceased.



The Rapture — “Sail Away” remixes
While The Rapture’s full-length fell a little more flat than I’d hoped, it had a couple of standout singles, and “Sail Away” was one of them. Cut Copy gives a signature tribal contribution, Aeroplane’s starts out sparse before blowing up into a full-on house rave, and Cosmic Kids win the award for choppiest chop-up. Their spacier, hypnotic take, complete with long-echoing, mixed-up vocals is about as different from the original as you can get. Thanks, DFA Records!



Laura Gibson — “La Grande”
Plaintive, pretty singer/songwriter Laura Gibson visits Opolis in February with Breathe Owl Breathe. Take this opportunity from NPR to get to know her.

Josh Sallee — “Ride Out”



What immediately grabbed me about this song was the cheesy, Grandma-giving-the-thumbs-up art, which initially triggered what I call a “whack-novelty” reaction deep within my brain. Then the track kicked in and I got all excited for his forthcoming album, “Probably Flaws.” Dude’s got skill, and it’s fun listening to him dance around the melody on the “Birthday Sex” sample. As solid a local hip-hop track as I've heard in a while.

The Hunger Games

Not bad — just bland.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
My opinion means absolutely squat on The Hunger Games, a massive hit on a global scale. Even those who didn't see it in theaters will want to out of curiosity's sake, like I did, just to see what all the fuss is about. I completely understand.

Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
If Norman’s Myke Brown keeps making music as good as he does in Don’t Forget the Y, Myke with a Y is sure to be a household name.
