Music Review: Songs from the Motion Picture Soundtrack, ‘The Rock ‘n’ Roll Dreams of Duncan Christopher’ (Velvet Blue)
This should not be a surprise, but the soundtrack to Justin Monroe’s “The Rock ‘n’ Roll Dreams of Duncan Christopher” is a spectacular weapon to be used against coastal twerps who might sneer at or otherwise doubt the rich bounty of great indie music in Oklahoma. Featuring some of the best emerging talent in this state, the soundtrack to Monroe’s indie film about an Oklahoma music scion’s journey of rock ‘n’ roll ambition plays like a particularly amazing weekend at FreeTulsa or the Norman Music Festival. This is not boosterism: the collection is that strong.
Colourmusic, Sherree Chamberlain and Broncho’s Ryan Lindsey contribute three tracks each — all of which will be familiar to long-standing fans. Lindsey’s tracks, including “Open Late” and the atmospheric “Summertime,” hark back to his 2006 album “White Paper Beds,” emphasizing the more introspective side of his songwriting that dominated before the launch of the ’77 punk-inspired Broncho. Chamberlain’s contributions include her superb “Circus Dear” and “Help Me,” and Colourmusic includes “Put in a Little Gas,” “Someday Speaks Loudly” and “The Gospel Song.”
