Grooms — Infinity Caller


Indie

Zach Hale
Grooms may be based out of Brooklyn, but their roots are firmly entrenched in Norman. Frontman Travis Johnson — an OU graduate — is the project’s linchpin, one that underwent a series of lineup shuffles and a name change (from The Muggabears) before relocating.

Pink Pony — Whatever


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
With a name like Whatever, you might expect the full-length debut of Oklahoma City’s Pink Pony — a repackaging of Steven Battles’ Chrome Pony now featuring our governor’s daughter, Christina Fallin — to read nonchalant, but it’s anything but. Instead, Whatever is one of the most tailored and tightly programmed efforts to come out from these parts in some time. It’s an album that moves as well as it thinks.

Graham Colton — Lonely Ones


Indie

Joshua Boydston
For some, Graham Colton’s latest album might be a jarring experience, marking a significant creative shift from polite folk-pop to the just-left-of-mainstream alternative rock grounds that have proven so fruitful in recent years for Foster the People, Young the Giant and Grouplove.
