Why American Aquarium Chose to Record Their New Album in Tulsa, Oklahoma

May 30, 2018

American Aquarium will release their seventh studio album, Things Change, this Friday. The album is a personal and a political one, coming on the heels of a band member overhaul, changes in frontman BJ Barham's personal life and the 2016 Presidental election.

In this interview with KOSU's John Cooper, Barham talks about overcoming a "creative wasteland" and why he chose to record their new album in Tulsa. Along the way, he expresses his love for Tulsa hotspots Lone Wolf Banh Mi and Chimera, as well as his appreciation for Oklahoma music, past and present.
