Limber Limbs — Limber Limbs


Rock

Joshua Boydston
A new name can be indicative of far more sweeping changes. Such is the case of Limber Limbs.

Skating Polly — Lost Wonderfuls


Rock

Zach Hale
Skating Polly is a different type of novelty act. The Oklahoma City-based duo of Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse has accrued an inordinate amount of interest for such a young band, ascending to the top of the local ranks largely because of their age: 13 and 17, respectively.

Tony Romanello and the Black Jackets — Pleased to Meet Us


Rock

Louis Fowler
It’s probably no accident that the title of Tony Romanello and the Black Jackets’ EP invokes The Replacements’ Pleased to Meet Me; as on that 1987 album, the ’Mats reconciled their roots-punk past with a more mature power-pop sound, so do these Tulsans.

The Flaming Lips — The Terror


Rock

Zach Hale
An ominous letter from Wayne Coyne surfaced when The Flaming Lips released a video preview of The Terror last month.

Taddy Porter — Stay Golden


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Stillwater rock outfit Taddy Porter must have been blissfully ignorant of the sophomore slump that’s taken down so many bands before it. Stay Golden not only matches the group’s 2010 self-titled debut, but exceeds it in about every possible way.

The Hitt Boyz — AlphaCat


Rock

Zach Hale
Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way: The band is called The Hitt Boyz, whose latest release is an EP titled AlphaCat, and, yes, the artwork is kind of amazing.

Depth & Current — Transient


Rock

Joshua Boydston
One gets the feeling that Depth & Current understands the dangers of having too much of a good thing.

Cosmostanza — Champs


Rock

Joshua Boydston
It takes most bands a couple of years to put out two EPs. Oklahoma City garage rockers Cosmostanza did that in less than six months.

The Grown Ups — Dark Hearts


Rock

Zach Hale
It's pretty clear that The Grown Ups know what good music sounds like. When the band ceases its emulation of good music and lets its creativity flow naturally, the Oklahoma City collective's new album, Dark Hearts, offers flashes of genuine talent.

Black Canyon — Black Canyon


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Black Canyon is a different alt-country band than the one you heard on its 2011 debut, Battlefield Darlins. Those songs were written by band leader Jake Morisse and Jordan Herrera, who has since split off and formed Young Readers, sounding as if The Decemberists had come from Enid instead of Portland.

Ripple Green — A Lungful


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings of Leon are two of the biggest rock groups in the world, but you don’t see many bands trying to put the two together. It works better than you might think on Oklahoma City three-piece Ripple Green’s new EP, A Lungful, which speaks worlds of the members’ respective talents.

The Fabulous St. Knicholas Cage — Shit Surf


Rock

Joshua Boydston
The landlocked state of Oklahoma might not seem the most likely breeding ground for excellent surf-punk bands, but it’s bore more than a few in recent years, although none so fabulously named as Tulsa’s The Fabulous St. Knicholas Cage.

Citizen Fred — Citizen Fred


Rock

Louis Fowler
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a raucous good time with Citizen Fred’s self-titled disc. With guttural vocals and crunching guitars, it sounds like the background music to a scene in a buddy-cop film where the mismatched partners go into a sleazy strip club to shake down perps.

Dirty Red & the Soulshakers — Soul Shakin’


Rock

Louis Fowler
I know most purists would look middle-aged white guys playing soul music and immediately pass — I can’t count how many times I have — but damned if Dirty Red & the Soulshakers don’t rock the joint for all of its juke, lack of pigment notwithstanding.

The Electric Primadonnas — Clergymen


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City psych rockers The Electric Primadonnas have been in hibernation for what feels like a couple of years, only emerging from their slumber for the occasional show or to leak a rough cut of a track.
