Eureeka — Polysynthetic Fields


Indie

Zach Hale
It’s always refreshing to hear music that embraces its own eccentricity, yet presents it in an accessible and meek fashion. Eureeka — the Norman-based duo of Jordan Vargas and Devin Wahl — has tapped into this rarified air on its self-released EP, Polysynthetic Fields.

Code 22 — Going Soft: The Acoustic Album!


Pop

Louis Fowler
The guys of Oklahoma City’s Code 22 seem like a likable group of fellas. Their latest release, Going Soft: The Acoustic Album!, is likable enough as well — so likable that on first listen, I took its clean, acoustic sound and clear, unstressed vocals as an alternative praise-and-worship band.

Tom Skinner — Tom Skinner


Country

Louis Fowler
Sincerity is nearly dead in songwriting. The image of the earnest singer with eyes tightly shut and a crack in his voice as he plunges to emotional depths has become a joke.

Big Worm — Bench All-Stars


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
Fans of the comedy classic Friday may recognize the name Big Worm, but the Big Worm behind Bench All-Stars is rooted not in South Central L.A., but on the streets of Oklahoma City.

Various artists — Never Give Up: Celebrating 10 Years of The Postal Service


Indie

Joshua Boydston
Few indie bands have had the impact on current music that The Postal Service has. Even fewer have done so with only one album.

IndianGiver — Plafond EP


Indie

Zach Hale
If you were to peruse the “About” section of IndianGiver’s Facebook page, you’ll notice how the instruments attributed to each of the Oklahoma City band’s five members are described with downright flippancy: Dylan Jordan plays “sticks & animal skins,” while Jazzton Rodriguez earns his keep with “shanties & loud noises,” and so on.
