Sooner the Sunset — Sooner the Sunset


Pop

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City’s own Graham Colton is one of the most formidable solo artists the Sooner state has to offer, and he’s even more impressive as half of the new duo Sooner the Sunset, having found his musical soul mate in vocalist Lindsey Ray.

Feathered Rabbit — Feathered Rabbit


Indie

Zach Hale
Feathered Rabbit is kind of a throwback band. Unlike most others in the digital age, its increased exposure has come by way of a bedazzling live presence and the ensuing word-of-mouth.

Dan Deacon — America


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
Lots of adjectives can be used to describe mad-pop scientist Dan Deacon’s back catalog: zany, fun, disorienting, loud, clashing, dysfunctional and dizzying.

Jimmy LaFave — Depending on the Distance

Mind the Fox — Songs for the Needy


Rock

Joshua Boydston
It’s taken four years since Mind the Fox’s formation for the Oklahoma City rock outfit to finally offer a full-length debut album, but from the sounds of Songs for the Needy, it’s been worth the wait.

G.O.O.D. Music — Cruel Summer


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Kanye West and his G.O.O.D. Music crew have finally dropped their long-awaited compilation album, Cruel Summer. It has its moments, but overall falls short of the high expectations that come with any Kanye project.

Two Snakes — Cut Them Down


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Who needs Red Bull, 5-hour Energy or a Thermos of coffee when you can consume Oklahoma City rock act Two Snakes’ EP, Cut Them Down, in less than 10 minutes? It plays like an adrenaline shot: quick, ballsy, addictive.

Animal Collective — Centipede HZ


Indie

Joshua Boydston
There really was no way for Animal Collective to match Merriweather Post Pavilion, widely considered the best album of 2009. It’s damn near impossible to bottle lightning twice, especially with the caustic and combustible ingredients the psych-rock band uses to build its ambitious opuses, in which indie electronics meet space rock.
