Crown Imperial — Crown Imperial


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Not much more than a year-old, Norman’s Crown Imperial already proves it’s a force to be reckoned with, on its self-titled debut. In just 16 minutes, the band flexes a knack for versatility, an eye for cohesiveness and an ear for massively addictive melodies.

Peach — Peachy-P


Rock

Matt Carney
Get it? “Peachy-P”? As in, “Peach EP”? Well, I thought it was kinda funny.

Day One — Art by Death


Hip Hop/Rap

“Art by Death” is something you probably won’t hear every day.

Black Canyon

Looking for some locally grown alt-country?


Music

Matt Carney
The subject of budding Okie videographer Nathan Poppe’s debut documentary, the foot-stomping Enid alt-country dudes in Black Canyon released their debut record “Battlefield Darlins” on Bandcamp.com last month, and — happy surprise! — they recruited Sherree Chamberlain to guest as the gal in this musical romance.

Two Suns — Dream Familiar


Indie

Matt Carney

Norman’s Jake Davidson beautifully reconciles his love for tradition-rich acoustic music with old-school English drum ’n’ bass electronica on his full-length debut, “Dream Familiar,” as recording project Two Suns.

Kill the Reflection — Together ... Apart ...


Rock

Matt Carney
Somewhere between Depth & Current’s thematic explorations of living in a broken world and Broncho’s uptempo pop-punk resides Oklahoma City trio Kill the Reflection, minus the two previous bands’ shoegaze and pop.

Music Made Me: Cameron Neal

Horse Thief’s lead singer speaks about the five albums that he holds dear.


Music

Matt Carney

Grateful Dead, American Beauty (1970)
From the nine months before I was born until now, this album and every other album by The Grateful Dead has been playing in my life. The free-spirit sound and attitude of this band is a huge part of who I am today. This would be a band that has changed the way I’ve thought about more life situations than religion. The smooth feeling of folk with a blend of psychedelic sound waves on this album speaks to me in ways little music does.

Soundcheck: Beetyman — Underdog


Music

Matt Carney
It’s refreshing to hear earnest backpack rap at a time when some of the most topically vile, base and offensive music in the genre’s history (read: Odd Future) is what’s buzzing.

Swing sets

Kick back. Relax. Let the city’s next generation of lounge singers set the mood for the moment.


Music

Joshua Boydston
Lounge music never dies. The bad haircuts and cheesy outfits may have, but a new generation of performers in the metro still swing with a thoughtfulness and individuality that made crooners the toast of the town in the Rat Pack era.
