Colourmusic

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.

Every week, the Oklahoma Music Minute gives a run down of where you can see live music. There is so much great music being played in the state and we encourage you to get out and see some of these musicians live! Here are our picks for the week of July 8-12.

Colourmusic released a new nine-song album, Swimsuit, this week. It's their first studio release in five years, following 2014's May You Marry Rich.

In the time between record releases, the band stopped performing live for several years and parted ways with its record label. Drummer Nick Ley also joined The Flaming Lips during the hiatus.

Last week, we counted down the top 25 Oklahoma songs of 2018. In total, we played 455 new songs on The Oklahoma Rock Show in 2018, so our final list was very competitive.

Check out our picks below.

25. Colourmusic - "Haunt Me"

24. Labrys - "Don't Know"

Earlier this week, Stillwater band Colourmusic released their new album, May You Marry Rich, via British label Memphis Industries. It’s their third full-length and showcases the band’s perpetual shift in sound.

When I first met Colourmusic, they were a five piece and often dressed in matching white jumpsuits. They were a whimsical band that often used gimmicks in their live show. These gimmicks included a satire on the modern American family, where band members dressed as a father, mother, son, daughter and uncle.
