Dez’s ‘dark place’

Mo' money, mo' problems.


CFN

Gazette staff
Even though the NFL is in a lockout, former Cowboy star Dez Bryant is still making headlines. Last week, CFN readers learned of the wide receiver’s ejection from an upscale Dallas mall for allegedly descending dungarees (hence the über-inquisitive headline, “Did Dez’s drawers droop?”).

Music Video Tuesday: Mesmerizers

A whole bunch of beautifully shot vids

Colourmusic is now important enough that Vevo has jumped in on their music videos! The lovable Stillwater weirdos celebrate by making a video of ultra-closeups of Ryan Hendrix’s beard, face and skin. It’s disgusting but mesmerizing:



Jabee gets an interview and two songs in this clip from Ackerman McQueen Music. Jabee was a fifth-grade Michael Jackson:



Jake Troth pairs whistling, onomatopoeia and oh-so-smooth electronic pop in an is-it-ironic-or-not? tune. The video’s pretty slick, too: 



Delay Trees’ video for “Cassette 2012” is gorgeously shot in soft hues. It’s not really of anything, but it’s beautiful and, thus, entertaining:



The video for Seun Kuti and Egypt 80’s “Rise” is also fascinating and beautifully shot. I love the dancing here:



While you’re here, grab these MP3s:
“Run” — The Clutters. Rock ’n’ roll that could have been made 50 years ago or 50 years in the future.
“I Love My Family” — The R’s. Quirky pop/rock from an Italian band signed to Nat Geo Music. Yes, National Geographic.
“Back in the Day” — Red Elk. Local rapper speaks to and sounds like olden days of hip-hop.

VOTD: All Other Lives, all the time

Five, yes five! live performances for KEXP!

Stillwater band Other Lives is about a month away from opening for the guy who’s the odds-on favorite for album of the year right now (can you say national exposure?). But currently, they’re about to jet off to Europe for a string of festival and small-venue dates. It appears that it’ll be a few months before they perform in Oklahoma again.

But fear not, friends! KEXP Radio in Seattle shot five live-in-studio performances by Jesse Tabish and company. “For 12” is my favorite here, but please watch them and let me know what you think. I can’t overstate how great it is that Other Lives is representing Oklahoma to indie audiences across the country and Europe right now.

For  12”


As I Lay My Head Down”


“Dark Horse”


Weather”


“Tamer Animals”


Kudos to Oklahomarock.com, who first pointed this out on their news blog!

VOTD: Give it up!

Cutesy indie rockers show up on the Black Cab Sessions.

Back in July, Louisiana Afrobeat/indie-pop goobers Givers swung by Bob Boilen's office for one of the better Tiny Desk Shows we've seen in a while.

More recently, they laid down an exuberant rendition of "Meantime" in the back of the namesake of The Black Cab Sessions, which has hit the States for an American tour in promotion of a recent documentary about American music. Watch below. And don't forget to catch the band when they swing through Stillwater to play College Days with Cold War Kids, Delta Spirit, Colourmusic and a handful of other local indie bands.

VOTD: Other Lives get 'Tiny'

Watch Stillwater’s dreariest band perform in NPR’s office.

Is it too soon to officially declare Other Lives “a thing”? Or too late?

Who knows, who cares, as pro-Other Lives band Local Natives sang last year. But this Tiny Desk Show in the NPR music office certainly can’t hurt the theory that they’ve arrived in the public’s indie-minded consciousness. Click through to watch as Jesse Tabish and company turn the media company somber.
