Features

Brendan Hoover
Sometimes the best ideas are so elegant, they feel serendipitously plucked from nature. ArtDesk, a new magazine produced by the Kirkpatrick Foundation, an Oklahoma City-based private philanthropy, is one of them.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss


Indie

Zach Hale
Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.
