In Their Skin

There go the neighborhoods.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I like In Their Skin under its international title, Replicas. Even if that makes Jeremy Power Regimbal’s directorial debut sound too sci-fi, it’s more interesting and apt.

OG&E must move past coal


Commentary

Whitney Pearson
Over the past few years, our nation has taken great strides toward reducing the enormous health burden posed by toxic coal-fired power plants and transitioning America to a future powered by clean energy.

Tony Romanello and the Black Jackets — Pleased to Meet Us


Rock

Louis Fowler
It’s probably no accident that the title of Tony Romanello and the Black Jackets’ EP invokes The Replacements’ Pleased to Meet Me; as on that 1987 album, the ’Mats reconciled their roots-punk past with a more mature power-pop sound, so do these Tulsans.

Get off of coal


Letters to the Editor

Casey Holcomb
Whitney Pearson’s April 10 commentary (”OG&E must move past coal,” Oklahoma Gazette) did an excellent job illustrating how our state stands to gain by getting off coal and leading the U.S. in making a rapid transition to clean and renewable energy.

Getting past coal


Letters to the Editor

Jody Harlan
In a recent letter to the editor in favor of burning toxic coal to generate electricity, Doug Rixmann (”Bashing coal,” May 1, Oklahoma Gazette) repeatedly demonstrated his lack of understanding of the consequences of burning coal to produce electricity, as well as the costs and risks associated with retrofitting older plants rather than retiring them and replacing them with clean energy.

Power Pyramid — The God Drums


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Shoegaze has its roots in the United Kingdom, but Oklahoma outfit Power Pyramid is doing it as well as anyone here or abroad. The four-piece started making noise with the release of a self-titled EP last fall, returning nearly a year later with its full-length debut The God Drums, a slow-burning, confident collection of endearingly lo-fi vignettes.

Sludge it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Here in Oklahoma, we know a thing or two about wind, but Windhand is here to teach us how to rock. The female-fronted sludge metal act’s new record, Soma, recently landed on Stereogum’s Best Albums of 2013. You can see them play 6 p.m. Sunday at The Conservatory, 8911 N. Western Ave., along with Power Trip, Iron Reagan and more. Tickets are $10. Call 607-4805 or visit conservatoryokc.com.
