Brianna Gaither — Love Is Patient

Piano pop on the short list for 'year's best album'


Pop

Stephen Carradini
Piano-based singer-songwriters are a dime a dozen, so it’s always a shock when one immediately jumps out from the first seconds of a track.

The Phynx

Phar-out, phunny, phreaky stuff.


Comedy

Rod Lott
If movies could be drug-tested, The Phynx would be in big trouble. The 1970 comedy is not just an obscurity, but an oddity, like a hallucinogenic brew mixed by Peter Max and Hanna-Barbera. Newly rescued from Nowheresville by Warner Archive, the film is a spy spoof on the goofball level of Get Smart — in spirit, that is, not creatively.

Just push play?


CFN

Gazette staff
Considering Aerosmith hadn’t recorded a studio album in 11 years before Music from Another Dimension! was unleashed last week, introducing the band to the iTunes generation made smart marketing sense. Therefore, Oklahoma’s own reigning country queen, Carrie Underwood, was called upon to duet with Steven Tyler on the power ballad “Can’t Stop Loving You.”
