The East

'East' meets best.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Across her three films as an actress/writer/producer (2011’s Another Earth, 2012’s Sound of My Voice and this summer's unjustly ignored The East), Brit Marling has explored the subjects of cults, symbols, duplicates, identity and family. Remarkably, despite these recurring themes and a tonal similarity, each experience seems anew.

The Younglings — The Younglings


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma’s own The Younglings aren’t so much breaking new ground as they are building on a solid foundation with their latest self-titled album, but the duo does a rather convincing strut in The Black Keys’ shoes in a Rubber Factory-worthy assembly line of tried and true blues rock tunes.

Brian Haas / Matt Chamberlain — Frames


Jazz

Zach Hale
Here’s an interesting fact about Frames, the new album from Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey mastermind Brian Haas and drummer Matt Chamberlain: If you pre-ordered the release, Haas — a Tulsa native — will record or play live at a show an improvisational piece based on your astrological chart.

Resolution

It will 'meth' with your head.


Horror

Rod Lott
After receiving a video of his best friend sky-high on meth, Michael (Peter Cilella) decides to do something about it. Arriving at a ramshackle, one-room home in the woods to find Chris (Vinny Curran) babbling about birds stealing his stuff and writing a book with a stray dog, Michael offers to take Chris to rehab.

The release of Oklahoma City act Somerset West’s new EP Black Cloud couldn’t come at a more serendipitous juncture.

Colourmusic — A Very Special Colourmusic Christmas: Vol. 1


Indie

Joshua Boydston

Oklahoma is quickly becoming the indie Christmas music capital of the world, it seems, with yearly compilation albums featuring everyone from Stardeath and White Dwarfs to Graham Colton. So it makes sense that Colourmusic — freak-poppers hailing from Stillwater — would craft a full album of original, offbeat holiday tunes themselves.

Soul Williams — Love, Soul: The Musical Letters Collective, Part 1


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to see why many secular types consider Christian music a joke. Badly produced, pre-programmed Casio backbeats and plastic saxophones providing the soundtrack to a holier-than-thou message inspires snickers and winces from even those least jaded. OKC’s Soul Williams aims to and succeeds in knocking some sense into that rightfully stereotyped scene.

Poolboy — Soda Kids


Rock

Zach Hale
The Oklahoma City metro has a thriving garage rock scene. With seasoned acts like Broncho and Copperheads carrying the modern-day torch, the way has been paved for a flock of gritty, young, guitar-centric acts. But nascent Norman trio Poolboy has a knack for riotous hooks that few of its contemporaries can boast.

Willis — The Understanding


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
From the opening R&B samples and powerful horn section that triumphantly blasts the arrival of a new hero on the scene, Willis’ The Understanding perfectly captures the innercity swagger of a blaxploitation movie icon.
