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.

Elephant Revival — Break in the Clouds

Family-style folk that's sure to please


Folk

Stephen Carradini
Remarkable consistency marks “Break in the Clouds” from Colorado-by-way-of-Tahlequah folksters Elephant Revival. Although the album is 14 songs long, there’s not a bad tune in the bunch.

Randy melodies

If a song a day keeps the doctor away, Randy Montgomery may be immortal. He’s on his way to 200 consecutive tunes.


Music

Mia Cantu
Folk and blues artist Randy Montgomery started making music when he was 14 years old. As a self-taught guitar player, he would mimic the ways of his musical idols, Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie.

Camp a lot

Rocky Horror meets the apocalypse in King GuitArthur and The Drüggs.


Performing Arts

Mia Cantu
The Mayans obviously had it wrong: The end of the world is actually in April. Cause of demise? Alien rock music. For proof, you need only join in the fun of the rock musical King GuitArthur and the Drüggs. It features an apocalypse, original songs and glitter.
