The Younglings — The Younglings


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma’s own The Younglings aren’t so much breaking new ground as they are building on a solid foundation with their latest self-titled album, but the duo does a rather convincing strut in The Black Keys’ shoes in a Rubber Factory-worthy assembly line of tried and true blues rock tunes.

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.

Power Pyramid — The God Drums


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Shoegaze has its roots in the United Kingdom, but Oklahoma outfit Power Pyramid is doing it as well as anyone here or abroad. The four-piece started making noise with the release of a self-titled EP last fall, returning nearly a year later with its full-length debut The God Drums, a slow-burning, confident collection of endearingly lo-fi vignettes.

Go Limp

Don’t let the name fool you; local punks Limp Wizurds write some seriously strong tunes.


Music

Joshua Boydston

You probably think of the Fred Durst-fronted, rap rock powerhouse Limp Bizkit when you hear the name of Oklahoma City punk outfit Limp Wizurdz.

It’s no accident.
