The Safari Collective guides local DIY movement

For the longest time, DIY artists didn’t feel like there was anyone there to share with. No one who listened. No one who cared. No one who knew that they even existed.

Sun rises

Ska music might have fallen out of the public eye since its mid-’90s heyday when The Mighty Mighty Bosstones briefly flirted with mainstream success and No Doubt’s ska-adjacent songs dominated radio, but Oklahoma City outfit Sunny Side Up is working to make sure the last horn hasn’t sounded. While the sextet started out simply trying

Cosmostanza — Champs

The gruesome twosome of guitarist Maxwell Moore and drummer Raney Aboud shows what it’s learned on the heels of August’s awesome Rad Vibes, yet knows to keep the things that made Cosmostanza so intriguing in the first place: sugary hooks, youthful energy. Champs is grown-up a bit, yes, more grounded and — dare I say

New sounds are born from new methods and ideas, and the traditional framework of a once-pure building block evolves into something completely its own. This is especially true of

Cosmo recipe

Singer/guitarist Maxwell Moore and drummer Raney Aboud were having some difficulty figuring out a name for their fledgling garage-rock duo when genius finally struck. “We both love the show Seinfeld, so I had the idea of George Costanza’s face floating in space, and then it came to me,” Moore said of the decision to call

Cosmostanza — Rad Vibes

Other music is just a hell of a lot of fun. Oklahoma City garage-rock duo Cosmostanza falls into the latter category with its debut EP, Rad Vibes, which is as gnarly as the title would suggest. The record is charmingly lo-fi and jam-packed with just as much promise as young, nervy energy. Rad Vibes finds
