Mmm ... Minty!

Norman’s much-loved Starlight Mints announce digital releases, singer’s solo album.

I’ve only enjoyed the pleasure of hearing the Starlight Mints play once, but it was most definitely enough to make the email I received from Allan Vest today a very happy one. 

According to Vest, the band’s two earliest albums, 2000’s “The Dream That Stuff Was Made Of” and  2003’s “Built On Squares” are now available for purchase from  iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic, Rhapsody, Napster and other digital music outlets. While OKS is personally very fond of “Rhino Stomp” and “Drowaton” in general, this is good news that the band’s older material’s finally found its way online. Now go buy it!

Vest, of Edmond, also said that he’s currently working on solo material in pursuit of a career in film and television scoring. Go, Oklahoma!

Double R — Dr. Digital


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
If I had to guess what field of medicine Moore-based rapper Double R (of Purple Mouth Bandits) had in mind for Dr. Digital, I’d have to go with psychiatry. Frankly, this album is pretty crazy.

Heroic hangover

Features

Alyssa Grimley
A comic book shop is more than just a place to buy the latest gotta-have graphic novel. It also can be the start of a creative partnership.

Trashed

Businesses navigate a new landscape in which social media may play a make-or-break role.


News

Dean Anderson
It’s the 21st-century equivalent of picket lines, letter-writing campaigns and a full-page ad in The New York Times. But the power of social media, as wielded by an ordinary citizen with a cell phone, can have a greater coordinated impact than all of them put together.

Ishtar

Don't believe the hype.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Telling the truth can be dangerous business, but here goes: Time slowly is proving me correct in my long-held assertion that Ishtar is a funny movie. Believe it.

Tallows — Memory Marrow


Indie

Zach Hale
Expectations can be a real pain in the ass. With today’s digital release model, hype trains traverse the Internet at breakneck speeds, often before a proper album is released. One or two great songs can set the bar so extraordinarily high that it will never be attained, much less cleared.
