NMF4: Saturday Sirens/Gregg Standridge/Man-made Objects

Rock, country and shoegaze in a row

After arriving too early at Blackwatch Stage for Unwed Sailor, I also arrived too early at Opolis for ManMade Objects. Instead, I caught the end of Saturday Sirens' frantic set. They were really pounding on their instruments and voices. It was a pretty impressive ruckus with a lot of movement.

Heading up the street, I stopped in at Bluebonnet Stage and listened to Gregg Standridge's (above, on right) country/folk/Southern rock amalgam. His band was sharp, and the sound was tight as a result. Ranging from outlaw country to ballads to crunchy tunes, the band went through a wide range of sounds. Each was pulled off impressively, not showing any signs of preference or of weakness.

After thoroughly enjoying Standridge's music, I returned to Opolis to actually catch Man-Made Objects (right). Their tunes fell in the space between psych and shoegaze, which made for a woozy, mind-melding experience. The band didn't move around much, but they made up for their lack of motion in dissonant volume. Fans of reverb and My Bloody Valentine should perk up their ears.

Drive Angry

Nic Cage doesn’t even need to try — and doesn’t — in this hard-R hoot

As aggressive as its name implies, "Drive Angry" is so deliriously over-the-top, I can't help but love it.

Depth & Current — Depth & Current

I always enjoy conversations — be they digital or in-person — with Hook Echo Sound and Nice People Records owner/engineer/operator Chris Harris, mainly as he’s one of the Oklahoma music community’s few remaining people who speaks his mind forcefully and directly.
