Kali Ra — Electric Living


Rock

Louis Fowler
Dressing in black and smoking Clove cigarettes may be in my past, but my love of darkly introspective music has stayed, no matter my mood. It’s not unusual to see me smiling while blasting The Cure’s Faith, David Bowie’s Low or, now, Oklahoma City act Kali Ra’s debut, Electric Living.

RED 2

Better dead than ‘RED.’


Action

Zach Hale
Nobody in their right mind would mistake 2010's RED for high art. The film was a harmless, mildly entertaining caricature of a summer blockbuster that provided a fair amount of laughs and a hefty amount of explosions. Any notion of plot played second fiddle to graphic absurdity, but it at least bumbled about with a little bit of charm and charisma.

Western Residents — Sunlit Nights


Indie

Zach Hale
When describing music, the word "maturity" implies that some weathering has been endured by a band — through trial and error, life events or what have you — before attaining this idea of a true identity, if it ever does.

Aisha Eustache — Love & Addiction


Eclectic

Louis Fowler
These days, it’s hard to find that classically soulful R&B sound. With so many manufactured pop divas’ vocal trills and high-pitched squeaks masquerading as music, R&B sadly has become a vapid wasteland.

Bowlsey — Sleepy Weather


Indie

Zach Hale
Bowlsey is a fearless bunch. Not fearless in that robotic, armor-clad superhero kind of way, but fearless because its members have nothing to lose, so why not rap over that muffled synth-pop track? Hell, you could even plant it between a couple soulful acoustic ballads. Sure, that’ll work.
