The Damn Quails — Down The Hatch


Country

Matt Carney
“Down the Hatch” is an important debut release for more than just the duo of Gabriel Marshall and Bryon White, who go by The Damn Quails. It’s indie label 598 Recordings’ (Chance Sparkman and Mike McClure) first long player, and a product of a prodigious amount of homegrown talent.

VOTD: ‘Fat Man’ in a little video

Song not autobiographical.

John Fullbright’s one of Oklahoma’s finest songwriters and one of our most disciplined students of Woody Guthrie’s school of often-critical, politically and socially conscious lyrics. And he’s not half-bad at tickling the ivories, either.

Fullbright recently performed “Fat Man,” about a selfish prig who “plucks life like a rose,” at the annual Cherokee Creek Music Festival in Cherokee, Texas, where it was filmed by Americana enthusiasts Music Fog:



Neon Indian — “Hex Girlfriend”

Here’s the earlier-promised video of Neon Indian performing at the second night of The Flaming Lips’ New Year’s Eve Freakout, shot by Nathan Poppe and myself. Alan Palomo shows off some serious confidence with those dance moves:



Colin Stetson — “Those Who Didn’t Run”
2011 was Colin Stetson’s year, releasing a lauded album of dystopian saxophone innovations that landed just outside of OKSee’s Top 10. If you can watch the 10 surrealistic minutes of nature shots that comprise “Those Who Didn’t Run” without losing focus, then you are a champion:



POLIÇA — “Lay Your Cards Out”
Once a folk singer up north, Channy Leaneagh (formerly Casselle) met up with Bon Iver collaborator Mike Noyce when she joined up with Wisconsin stoner soft-rockers Gayngs. The result is the avant, Auto-Tuned POLIÇA, and it kinda makes me wish she’d have stuck with more natural-sounding ways of making music. But, to each his own:



“Shut Up and Play the Hits”

If such a thing as a “perfect band” existed, or at least a band that acted exactly as it should, LCD Soundsystem was that band. Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace shot a film following front man James Murphy during his last couple days of LCD’s band-ship, which included a Last Show Ever for the record books. If the trailer’s any indicator, it looks fantastic:

Getting a Woody

With thousands of votes submitted, the people have spoken! Here are your winners of Oklahoma Gazette’s Woody Awards for 2012!


Music

Matt Carney, Rod Lott
Best in Rock: Broncho
Nobody in the metro regularly plays more exciting shows than pop-punk savages Broncho. When that guitar riff and ensuing solo on “Pick a Fight” revs up, audiences just know to start hopping, shoving and yelping along with singer Ryan Lindsey, who’s unafraid of pushing and kicking back, nor getting his ass slapped mid-show. They may not “Really Wanna Be Social,” but they’re gonna have to suck it up because we love ’em a bunch.
