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.

SXSW FAQ

Well, frequently asked by Oklahoma Gazette, that is. We polled 12 local acts about their expectations for South by Southwest.


Music

Stephen Carradini

I Spy ... ?

With The Spy having left the airwaves a quarter of a year ago, its fervent fans still rally behind its online incarnation, but hope for an eventual return to the dial.


Music

Joshua Boydston
When people first heard the news of The Spy’s exit from FM radio on Dec. 4, 2010, the response was more than of sadness and disappointment.

Spring is about renewal. The air is fresh, the mornings are cool, and all the new green things are growing. You can’t help but want to get your hands in the dirt and grow some things of your own.
