Turnpike Troubadours — Goodbye Normal Street


Country

Phil Bacharach
On Goodbye Normal Street, their third full-length album, Turnpike Troubadours serve up a potent brew of country, bluegrass, folk and even Creole (just to kick it up a notch). The quintet from Stillwater produces music that’s straightforward and simple, but hardly simplistic.

CFN’s awfully harsh record review of the week


CFN

Gazette staff
“It’s so ‘down’ and so ‘jiggy,’ I swear they even rip off the damned Proclaimers with straight faces, and suffice it to say, leading forced-shout vocalist and bassist Tyson Ritter is no Johnny Depp/Buster Keaton. ... Did anyone mention the last decade is over now? They didn’t get that memo.”

Chad Sullins and the Last Call Coalition — Incommunicado


Country

Joshua Boydston
Just a few minutes into Incommunicado, it becomes painfully obvious that Oklahoma native Chad Sullins knows his Red Dirt, country, classic rock and blues, and he blends them into the perfect barn-party soundtrack. The album plays like The Hangover set in Stillwater instead of Vegas, with all the emotions, amusement and reflections therein.

Their lips were sealed


CFN

Gazette staff
In a move seemingly plucked straight out of Joseph Heller’s classic novel, Catch- 22, Oklahoma State University officials decided the best way to protect victims of sexual assault was to not tell police about those incidents of sexual assault.

Green power


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma State University loves its orange and black, but it looks like there’s also room for a fair amount of green. That’s according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which named OSU fifth in the nation for green-power purchasing among colleges and universities.
