Tallows — Memory Marrow


Indie

Zach Hale
Expectations can be a real pain in the ass. With today’s digital release model, hype trains traverse the Internet at breakneck speeds, often before a proper album is released. One or two great songs can set the bar so extraordinarily high that it will never be attained, much less cleared.

The gospel according to Sean

Sean C. Johnson lends his soulful sound to inspire the masses.


Music

Louis Fowler
Neo-gospel singer Sean C. Johnson has always been a music fan, but it wasn’t until hearing a ’60s soul legend on a record player by chance that he decided, right then and there, that was what he wanted to do with his life.

Barling — Barling With a “B”


Country

Louis Fowler
With the exception of a few months in my early teens when I was trying to impress gutter-punk chicks, I have always had a deep and abiding love of country music. Because, as any kid growing up in this region will tell you, it was all my leather-skinned dad would listen to in the car.

Music Made Me: Mike Hosty

The rollicking blues enthusiast shares the five albums that shaped his rugged musical outlook.


Music

Phil Bacharach
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Will the Circle be Unbroken (1972) 

My dad bought this album and played it over and over on his new 1978 Nikko hi-fi stereo, which I still have. It was the guitar playing of Doc Watson and Merle Travis that really caught my ear. Amazing picking, playing and songs like “Tennessee Stud.”

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.

Kings of Leon — Mechanical Bull


Rock

Zach Hale
Let’s be perfectly clear: Kings of Leon sold out. That’s not always necessarily a bad thing, but in this case, it is.
