The Grown Ups — Dark Hearts


Rock

Zach Hale
It's pretty clear that The Grown Ups know what good music sounds like. When the band ceases its emulation of good music and lets its creativity flow naturally, the Oklahoma City collective's new album, Dark Hearts, offers flashes of genuine talent.

Cosmostanza — Champs


Rock

Joshua Boydston
It takes most bands a couple of years to put out two EPs. Oklahoma City garage rockers Cosmostanza did that in less than six months.

One in Three

Oklahoma City’s Nathan Mickle makes up a third of the new vocal group The American Three, dedicated to belting out standards.


Music

Louis Fowler
Press materials for The American Three tag the new vocal group as “fun and wholesome,” with a little Rat Pack thrown in “just for flavor!” It’s that extra flavor that Three member and lifelong Ol’ Blue Eyes fan Nathan Mickle believes fits his song stylings to a T.

SXSW 2013: Horse Thief / Colourmusic

Horse Thief takes the reins, while Colourmusic paints music to be felt.


Music

Stephen Carradini
Horse Thief’s act of draping an Oklahoma flag over one of its amp stands may have just been a proud statement of local love, but it is also a reflection of its wide-open, rootsy, rock ’n’ roll sound. The band describes itself as a “psychedelic folk rock band,” and that description isn’t bad, either.

Music

Stephen Carradini
After an unusually easy commute and parking job, I settled into a chill afternoon at The Buffalo Lounge with Bowlsey, Desi and Cody, and Brave.
