John Moreland

Every Tuesday, The Spy adds new music to its rotation. Here are the adds for the week of October 22, 2019. This week's playlist includes a single from Beck's upcoming album, the first release from Wolf Parade in two years, a taste of John Moreland's album set to release in 2020, and so much more.

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 concerts live! Here are our picks for the week of June 24-28.

When you hear John Moreland's sweet voice, it's hard to believe he spent years singing in punk, metal-core and hardcore bands. You can still hear that passion in his music, only now it's punctuated by his acoustic guitar.

Josh DeLozier's Top 15 Songs of 2017

Wiretap is an hour-long countdown of hottest alternative songs of the week, every Friday night at 10 p.m.

We asked Josh DeLozier, the show's host, to list his top songs of 2017 - here they are:

15. Samantha Crain - "Oh Dear Louis"

14. Kings of Leon - "Around the World"

Last week, we counted down the top 25 Oklahoma songs of 2017. In total, we played 435 new songs on The Oklahoma Rock Show in 2017, so our final list was extremely competitive.

Check out our picks below.

25. St. Vincent - "Pills"

24. Gabriel Royal - "Say It's Right"

There was barely a cloud in the sky all weekend at the 2016 Newport Folk Festival this past weekend. But the uninterrupted stretch of three gloriously sunny days wasn't the only stroke of good fortune festivalgoers encountered. Each day at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, R.I., was filled with surprise guests and moments of serendipity.

Last night, the rest of America got to see what we've known here in Oklahoma for years: John Moreland will move you.

The Tulsa musician's powerful lyrics, skillful fingerpicking, and gravelly vocal delivery collectively have the ability to turn you into a puddle of tears. And, you'll come running back for more.

Rolling Stone called it "an emotionally riveting performance."
