Graham Colton — Lonely Ones


Indie

Joshua Boydston
For some, Graham Colton’s latest album might be a jarring experience, marking a significant creative shift from polite folk-pop to the just-left-of-mainstream alternative rock grounds that have proven so fruitful in recent years for Foster the People, Young the Giant and Grouplove.

Rock

Joshua Boydston
All of Fuzz Steilacoom’s best qualities are revealed in “Alabama Movies” and “A Little Late,” the opening and closing tracks of the Oklahoma City duo’s third full-length. The relationship between them unveils the worst.

Smith Westerns — Soft Will


Indie

Zach Hale
Most bands don’t make their “mature” album until they’re, you know, mature. Chicago trio Smith Westerns is like the indie-rock equivalent of Robin Williams in Jack: just a few years removed from high school, yet appearing to age more rapidly than the majority of their contemporaries.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss


Indie

Zach Hale
Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.
