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.

Horse Thief — Grow Deep, Grow Wild


Indie

Zach Hale
Psychedelic folk isn’t new, but it certainly is increasing in popularity. The surge has brought such weird-minded acts as Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective to the forefront, but the downside to any emerging movement is that it inevitably will seduce those who seek to piggyback on its success.

Rock

Zach Hale

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.

Samantha Crain — Kid Face


Folk

Zach Hale
Take away the album name — and its cover — and you’d never know Kid Face was released by a 26-year-old. The most alluring weapon in her arsenal, Samantha Crain’s voice resides somewhere between Nico’s husky croon and Joni Mitchell’s tuneful elegance.
