Picher, Oklahoma has been called one of America's most toxic towns. So, what better inspiration for a noise rock band?

Oklahoma City band Chat Pile takes its name from the large waste remains of the early 20th century lead mining that had been done in Picher. Adopting stage names like Raygun and Stin, the band released a noisey debut EP titled This Dungeon Earth in Maychanneling what had happened to Picher.

Talihina. Davidson. Drive too fast and you might not even notice these small Oklahoma towns, but if you stick around, you might hear some music in the air.

For Steven and Isaiah Carter, the brother duo making up band Smokey Motel, growing up in Davidson in far southwestern Oklahoma sharpened their focus on music.

With band members from hardcore and worship bands to small towns in Oklahoma and Nashville, Tennessee, Mad Honey comes together to make music that is dreamy, glittery, and a perfect band for those end of summer days. The band is made up of Tiffany Sutcliffe (singer/guitarist), Branden Palesano (bass), Keegan Ball (guitar), and Austin Valdez (drums).

For reasons unknown, Chris Gaines is having a moment.

Matthew Viriyapah interviewed Tripsitters, an indie rock trio hailing from Norman, Oklahoma. Like many musical outfits from Norman, the group formed while two of the members, Michael and Jeremiah had attended the University of Oklahoma. Eventually the drummer, Logan, moved down from Tulsa and the three have been together ever since.

Nearly 40 years into their career, The Flaming Lips remain remarkably ageless and endlessly creative. They return this week with another heady, psychedelic pop record inspired by a surreal art installation by frontman Wayne Coyne. On this week's New Music Friday, we climb inside the band's kaleidoscopic new record, The King's Mouth.

Colourmusic's latest album, Swimsuit, marks a return for the band, who after a hiatus have played a string of live performances this year with another show happening tonight at Tower Theatre with Broncho and Deerpeople.

KOSU intern Matthew Viriyapah interviewed Oklahoma City indie musician Kat Lock earlier this year when she only had one single, "Hard to Find." Formerly of the band, St. Basic, Lock has been striking out on her own for the past year. Now, her first EP, You Again, is set to come out, with another possibly on the horizon for 2019.
