Power Pyramid — The God Drums


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Shoegaze has its roots in the United Kingdom, but Oklahoma outfit Power Pyramid is doing it as well as anyone here or abroad. The four-piece started making noise with the release of a self-titled EP last fall, returning nearly a year later with its full-length debut The God Drums, a slow-burning, confident collection of endearingly lo-fi vignettes.

Gobble it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Guinness World Record Gobbler Challenge just sounds awesome, doesn’t it? That’s what is taking place at the fourth annual Edmond Turkey Trot — a 5k run and 1-mile “family wobble” — which is teaming up with other cities to break the world record for most combined participants in a multi-venue race. Trotting begins at 8 a.m. Thursday in downtown Edmond. Registration is required. Visit edmondturkeytrot.com.

Colourmusic — A Very Special Colourmusic Christmas: Vol. 1


Indie

Joshua Boydston

Oklahoma is quickly becoming the indie Christmas music capital of the world, it seems, with yearly compilation albums featuring everyone from Stardeath and White Dwarfs to Graham Colton. So it makes sense that Colourmusic — freak-poppers hailing from Stillwater — would craft a full album of original, offbeat holiday tunes themselves.

Willis — The Understanding


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
From the opening R&B samples and powerful horn section that triumphantly blasts the arrival of a new hero on the scene, Willis’ The Understanding perfectly captures the innercity swagger of a blaxploitation movie icon.
