Norman Music Festival

April 25, 2009

I’m hitting up the Norman Music Festival today. I’ll be tweeting things as I go. I’ll be posting full reviews with some pictures throughout this upcoming week. This does pre-empt some of our scheduled coverage, but we’ll jump right back on track on Wednesday or Thursday. Bands most excited to see: Uglysuit, Man Man, the Non, Sugar-Free Allstars. Default interest on Of Montreal, but I only know two or three of their songs.

But I did enjoy how I described them to a friend who hadn’t heard of them:

“Take Sufjan 33 records and bump the speed up to forty-five, then through in a high-pitched singer. Then they all look like David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust era. Then you add some girls in the mix, and you’ve got Of Montreal.”

It’s a pretty poor description, but hey. It’s Of Montreal. What do you expect?


Stephen Carradini and Lisa Whealy write reviews of instrumental, folk, and singer/songwriter music. We write about those trying to make the next step in their careers and established artists.
