Two Suns rise

Not about Tatooine.

Norman-based indie recording project Two Suns just announced a novel release model for a very promising album.  “Dream Familiar” will be released at the rate of one song a week at the group’s Bandcamp page.


Opener “Ran Wild” is a pretty compelling six minutes of Radiohead-style ambient guitars (think  slowed-down take on “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi”’s swirling sound) with tribal and drum ’n’ bass rhythmic patterns. Toss in a breakdown with some cooing, shoegazey lyrics and we’ve got ourselves a neat little art project. Listen:



Read about Two Suns’ previous, eponymous EP,  and give ’em the ol' Facebook like.

Dirty Girl

Set (but not shot) in Oklahoma, ‘Dirty Girl’ almost makes a clean getaway.


Drama

Rod Lott
Set in Norman in 1987, yet looking more like 1981, is “Dirty Girl,” the feature debut of former Normanite Abe Sylvia — and a partly autobiographical one at that, I assume.
