Wild Nothing — Nocturne


Pop

Joshua Boydston
As clichéd as it is easy, it is nice to stop and smell the roses once in a while. Nocturne is the aural equivalent.

The XX — Coexist

Two Snakes — Cut Them Down


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Who needs Red Bull, 5-hour Energy or a Thermos of coffee when you can consume Oklahoma City rock act Two Snakes’ EP, Cut Them Down, in less than 10 minutes? It plays like an adrenaline shot: quick, ballsy, addictive.

Rock of ageless

That Aug. 31 show of Def Leppard, Poison and Lita Ford proved nothin’ but a good time.


Music

Louis Fowler
