The SweetWater — Moonshine


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City rock act The SweetWater works for something wholly unique in its full-length debut, and while it’s a tall order to hone down influences as varied as Queens of the Stone Age, Black Crowes and Alice in Chains, the band does an admirable job of it with Moonshine.

Cusp — Nothing Proper


Indie

Joshua Boydston

What a beautiful introduction Nothing Proper is to Cusp and the man behind it, Taylor Rapp, who should become a force in Oklahoma music sooner, rather than later.

Montu — Bloom


Indie

Joshua Boydston
Being a jamtronica band, Oklahoma City act Montu is at the distinct disadvantage of playing a style of music that simply works better in a live setting than on a recording. Even so, Bloom is a solid effort that never drags — thanks to brilliant pacing any working band should note — and Montu steps over the hump, so to speak, and shows there’s no need to confine its tunes to live consumption only.

Sound of Noise

Breaking the law never sounded so sweet.


Comedy

Rod Lott
One man's symphony is another's pollution, and to police inspector Amadeus Warnebring (Bengt Nilsson), head of the department's anti-terrorism unit, no music is good music. Although coming from a family of musicians, he's tone-deaf. Notes make his ears bleed, literally.
