Taddy Porter — Stay Golden


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Stillwater rock outfit Taddy Porter must have been blissfully ignorant of the sophomore slump that’s taken down so many bands before it. Stay Golden not only matches the group’s 2010 self-titled debut, but exceeds it in about every possible way.

Portraiture — Real as Ritual


Pop

Louis Fowler
Portraiture, aka OKC native Nathan Siler backed by The Fellowship Students, has such a lushly melancholy and bleakly pretty sound, I’m surprised the guys aren’t from Manchester, England.

No Justice — America’s Son


Country

Louis Fowler
When something really catches my ear, I tend to imagine it in the closing credits of a movie, and then I work backward, formulating a plot and actors. “Never Gonna Be Enough,” the opening track on Red Dirt rockers No Justice’s latest, America's Son, had me doing that within 10 seconds.

Tony Romanello and the Black Jackets — Pleased to Meet Us


Rock

Louis Fowler
It’s probably no accident that the title of Tony Romanello and the Black Jackets’ EP invokes The Replacements’ Pleased to Meet Me; as on that 1987 album, the ’Mats reconciled their roots-punk past with a more mature power-pop sound, so do these Tulsans.
