Music

Stephen Carradini
If you’re going to be playing mournful New Orleans jazz, you better have a broken heart, a gritty voice and a talented band.

VOTD: Shitty/Awesome, 'Hang Up'

‘That’s the waaaaayyyy we becaaaaaaaame the Shitty/Awesome Bunch!’


Local noise-rock/record store dudes Shitty/Awesome go all “Brady Bunch” on us with this one. I can’t remember if it was Jan or Marcia I developed a crush for when I was a kid and addicted to Nick at Nite.

Gotta be Marcia.—Matt Carney

VOTD: Law man

Watch the Choctaw folksinger pick, chat about life on the farm.

Local guy Ryan Lawson has a Twitter handle, but not a TV or access to the Internet. Interesting.

He’s also got a bunch of good, authoritative songs in folk, country and bluegrass styles, so maybe there’s something to living out on the fringe. He also plays his guitar the approximately the same angle Paul McCartney played his bass, which you can watch below, thanks to the “Chevy Bricktown Showcase”:

What sound does a Walrus make?

Watch three more local musicians test out Walrus Audio’s latest product, the Iron Horse.

Normanite and Gentle Ghost guitarist Brady Smith alerted his Facebook friends to another Delo Creative-created video testimonial promotion yesterday. This one, like the last one for the Voyager pedal, features three excellent local musicians playing around with it in the studio. This time, it’s Tulsa guitarist Clay Welch (Panda Resistance, Dead Sea Choir), Colourmusic drummer Nick Ley and Stardeath bass player Casey Joseph.



It sounds like this distortion pedal adds some serious force to the live performance. So watch out, Oklahoma music fans, as Brady Smith may be equipping your favorite bands with what they need to stomp on your eardrums.
