Norman rock act Gravity Propulsion System breaks orbit with new album 

In a world of posers and shoegazers, there's a need for some good old-fashioned, foot-to-the-floor rock music. Gravity Propulsion System has heeded that call for a decade now, and with its latest album, "Days Like Razors," the Norman-based band continues to carry the torch for dirty, angry and aggressive garage rockers everywhere.

The band will play a CD release show with El Paso Hot Button, Rainbows Are Free and a few other performers Saturday at The Conservatory.

"There is a certain aggression we go for " a certain feeling," lead singer Brian Baxter said. "We are obsessed with sound, whether it's a refrigerator or machinery. There's that aspect of our sound aside from just the instrumentals."

The members of GPS say the majority of their music evolves from improvisation, while trying to deftly sidestep the jam-band label.

"When we sit down to play, there are no rules and that's what we are good about: not setting any rules for what a 'rock band' should sound like," drummer Scott Twitchell said. "We just let it channel through us, which is more similar to jazz musicians."

After a stint as a two-piece, GPS is back to having three members after Austin, Texas, transplant Twitchell joined.

"We weren't really looking for a drummer, but when they described him to us, we said, 'That's our drummer,'" Baxter said.

"I was looking for a drummer," guitarist Lance Pellegrini corrected. "I was playing drums and guitar at the same time, so I was really looking for a drummer." "Charles Martin
