Album Review: Okie Tone Mixtape, Vol. 1

Title:  Okie Tone Mixtape, Vol. 1 (Official)
Artist:  Various Artists

Tulsa's Okie Tone Records (Official, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, ReverbNation, SoundCloud) is an excellent label that focuses on local artists that play in the alt country, country, and red dirt genres.  The label's first compilation includes tracks from John Moreland, Mike Williams, and The Brandon Clark Band.  Most of these songs are available on other releases but all of them are fantastic and worth getting again.  All three artists write excellent songs and are worth following (Moreland and Williams happen to be two of my favorite local artists).  With this as the first taste of what Okie Tone has in store, the future looks extremely bright for this label and the Oklahoma music scene.
