Kite Flying Robot — Solid Gold

Here's to cool.


Indie

Stephen Carradini
For an album that boasts 13 different instruments, eight vocalists and a bling-tastic title, I expected the Oklahoma City-based Kite Flying Robot’s debut to be a giddy, stuffed-to-the-hilt affair.

The Workweek — Promises, Promises


Country

Stephen Carradini
Oklahoma City’s The Workweek follows The Jayhawks and Wilco in making the lines between folk, country and rock negligible on its debut release, “Promises, Promises.”

Ugly no more

The last hurrah of The Uglysuit appears


Music

Stephen Carradini
Oklahoma City indie-rock band The Uglysuit broke up last year, leaving behind an unfinished album and a fan base spread across the nation. But after some late-night mixing and mastering sessions, the nine-track album, “Awwww, Shucks …” will make it to ears across America sometime this year.
