Montu — Bloom


Indie

Joshua Boydston
Being a jamtronica band, Oklahoma City act Montu is at the distinct disadvantage of playing a style of music that simply works better in a live setting than on a recording. Even so, Bloom is a solid effort that never drags — thanks to brilliant pacing any working band should note — and Montu steps over the hump, so to speak, and shows there’s no need to confine its tunes to live consumption only.

So Sheik

Although not religious leaders, The Sheiks could inspire legions of followers with their alt-rock riches.


Music

Joshua Boydston
Admittedly, the origin of The Sheiks’ name might be a tad uncouth, but the moniker suits the local alt-rockers pretty well.

Cusp — Nothing Proper


Indie

Joshua Boydston

What a beautiful introduction Nothing Proper is to Cusp and the man behind it, Taylor Rapp, who should become a force in Oklahoma music sooner, rather than later.
