Planting the seed

“We think about it as a team,” she said. “Watching so many bands for so long and standing in the audience, I was like, ‘I want to try that.’ After playing by yourself for so many years and seeing what level you can reach with so many musicians coming in, you pretty much have to.

Boare - "playdatshit"


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Tallows - "Soft Water (PLSTKNOVA Remix)"


Electronica

Zach Hale
Much of Tallows’ 2013 album, Memory Marrowseems ripe for the remix treatment. “Soft Water,” however, would probably be the most daunting prospect for a producer to tackle, if for no other reason than it’s probably the record’s most organic, guitar-driven song.

PLSTKNOVA — Lights


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
In a lot of ways, Ethan Strange — the mind behind Edmond electronic act PLSTKNOVA — is as much a dreamer as musician.

Pink Pony — Whatever


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
With a name like Whatever, you might expect the full-length debut of Oklahoma City’s Pink Pony — a repackaging of Steven Battles’ Chrome Pony now featuring our governor’s daughter, Christina Fallin — to read nonchalant, but it’s anything but. Instead, Whatever is one of the most tailored and tightly programmed efforts to come out from these parts in some time. It’s an album that moves as well as it thinks.

Jumpship Astronaut — Lights Burn Out


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma has never been the haven for electronic rock music that it is for country, folk and, as of late, psychedelic pop, but from the sound of Lights Burn Out, Oklahoma City upstart Jumpship Astronaut seems intent on changing that.

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.

Colin Nance — Warmth


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
With M83 catching fire in the past year, it’s a shame that Oklahoma listeners haven’t caught onto their very own Colin Nance, who’s quietly doing an outstanding job in that same realm of shoegaze pop. In a six-track follow-up EP to 2011’s Summer Fever, Nance has refined an already blossoming sound, and Warmth is just as inviting as it sounds.

Tele Mori — Sounds from a Broken Music Box


Electronica

Rod Lott
Nearly six years ago, an Oklahoma City duo by the name of Tympanic Frenzy sent my eardrums into just that with a terrific, if oddly punctuated electronica album in Cerebral Funktion .. in Process …

The 2 Bears — Be Strong

‘Bear Hug’ is dangerous in the best way.


Electronica

Jonathan Davis
Named for the fabulously hairy and rotund, The 2 Bears hail in part from the London DJ scene. This brash and unapologetic dance duo knows how to do one thing: Get you in their paws and never let go.

Justice — Audio, Video, Disco

As subtle as a herd of buffalo stampeding off a cliff at the end of the world. In space.


Electronica

Matt Carney
The long-awaited follow-up to Justice’s 2007 debut, “†,” stuffed so terrifically full of trippy, scuzzy future-disco, has arrived, signaled by guitars so big that they belong to the skyscraping giants of rock. Yup, the Parisian heirs to Daft Punk’s pyramidal throne are drawing from arena-stomping, ’70s-era prog.

Neon Indian — Era Extraña

Set synthesizers to … video game?


Electronica

Matt Carney
Alan Palomo, Neon Indian’s oddball brain, is literally one week older than me, according to his Wikipedia page (note to self: Build my own Wikipedia page). This boggles my mind, although it really shouldn’t. The bands building these synth-thick, shoegazey, beat-propelled chillwave albums are all kids screwing around on the Internet (see: Washed Out, Youth Lagoon, Toro Y Moi), so it shouldn’t come as a surprise then to find out that they like to also sometimes record really cheeky, very fun music.

Washed Out — Within and Without

Has a band's name ever better captured its sound?


Electronica

Matt Carney
Back in 2009, Ernest Greene recorded two of the year’s most widely praised EPs with cheap, airy synthesizers at his parents’ house in rural Georgia.

Two Suns — Two Suns EP

Artsy electronic pop with a unique idiom


Electronica

Stephen Carradini
Although Two Suns’ beats, synth and guitar compositions are heavily electronic, it still feels as if electronics are just the foundation for the melodies.

Dam Mantle — First Wave

A weird, wonderful electronic anomaly


Electronica

Stephen Carradini
Dam Mantle’s “First Wave” is an weird, wonderful anomaly. It’s some sort of glitchy, electronic music, but instead of being cold and robotic, it’s vivid and full of life.

Dirty Vegas — Electric Love

Sunny, optimistic Vegas, this time


Electronica

Rod Lott
If all you know of Dirty Vegas is its dark, omnipresent 2002 hit, “Days Go By,” you’ll be surprised by the trio’s third album, “Electric Love,” its first in seven years.
