IndianGiver — Plafond EP


Indie

Zach Hale
If you were to peruse the “About” section of IndianGiver’s Facebook page, you’ll notice how the instruments attributed to each of the Oklahoma City band’s five members are described with downright flippancy: Dylan Jordan plays “sticks & animal skins,” while Jazzton Rodriguez earns his keep with “shanties & loud noises,” and so on.

John Moreland — In the Throes


Rock

Joshua Boydston
With the soul of a poet and the look of a Sons of Anarchy extra, Tulsa’s John Moreland has been gifted the sort of gravely, booming voice that does Bruce Springsteen proud and a similar understanding of the universal human experience. It’s made for some fantastic records — both as a solo artist and with his dissolved Black Gold Band — and In the Throes is his best yet.

Sweet slumber

Between the states of consciousness and unconsciousness exists the ideas behind the alt-electronic indie project This Is Sleep.


Music

The technology boom of the last two decades has made life easier in a variety of ways. In the music world, widespread computer use has spawned a modern-day compositional renaissance.
