Wild Nothing — Nocturne


Pop

Joshua Boydston
As clichéd as it is easy, it is nice to stop and smell the roses once in a while. Nocturne is the aural equivalent.

Rock of ageless

That Aug. 31 show of Def Leppard, Poison and Lita Ford proved nothin’ but a good time.


Music

Louis Fowler
For one sweltering night, everyone at the Zoo Amphitheatre — young and old, black and white, old-school hesher and decked-out hipster — were 16 years old again, living in the much-missed year of 1987, all without a single hint of irony.

Mind the Fox — Songs for the Needy

Dan Deacon — America


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
Lots of adjectives can be used to describe mad-pop scientist Dan Deacon’s back catalog: zany, fun, disorienting, loud, clashing, dysfunctional and dizzying.

Sooner the Sunset — Sooner the Sunset


Pop

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City’s own Graham Colton is one of the most formidable solo artists the Sooner state has to offer, and he’s even more impressive as half of the new duo Sooner the Sunset, having found his musical soul mate in vocalist Lindsey Ray.
