Horse Thief — Grow Deep, Grow Wild


Indie

Zach Hale
Psychedelic folk isn’t new, but it certainly is increasing in popularity. The surge has brought such weird-minded acts as Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective to the forefront, but the downside to any emerging movement is that it inevitably will seduce those who seek to piggyback on its success.

Prettyboy — Dejvická


Pop

Joshua Boydston
It's always nice to see someone come into his or her own skin. With Dejvická, Prettyboy — the new moniker of Norman singer-songwriter Jacob Abello — does just that.

Tom Skinner — Tom Skinner


Country

Louis Fowler
Sincerity is nearly dead in songwriting. The image of the earnest singer with eyes tightly shut and a crack in his voice as he plunges to emotional depths has become a joke.

Few indie bands have had the impact on current music that The Postal Service has. Even fewer have done so with only one album.

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.
