Bright, Shining New Oklahoma Music

Face it, Sooner fans: good things do come out of Stillwater. Born from a friendship between Oklahoma native Ryan Hendrix and British exchange student Nick Turner, Colourmusic knocks out richly woven sounds of varying instrumentations, tempos and textures – they’ve been described as “Oklahoma Sex Rock,” if that helps nail down the genre at all, and exhibit influences from The Polyphonic Spree, The Flaming Lips and Sir Isaac Newton’s espoused philosophy that musical tones have visual representations in the color spectrum. See how their jam sounds with the April 8 U.S. release of “May You Marry Rich.”

Recent ACM @ UCO graduates and movers of the local live music scene Horse Thief are broadening their horizons; by the Ides of April the howling psych-rock quintet will have a full-length album in stores. Look to experience “Fear in Bliss” beginning April 14.
