Sunday ACL Fest Platter: Okey Dokey

Love You, Mean It (Exag)

Anchored by Aaron Martin and Johny Fisher, Okey Dokey's debut recruits Nashville's indie scene, including members of Wild Child, Rayland Baxter, the Weeks, and Ron Gallo. Love You, Mean It thus swoons with a twee-ish, indie-pop delight. From the bass-driven groove of "Coffee Boi" and lo-fi swirl of "Simpler Times" to the throwback touch of Memphis R&B on "Low Rent // Blue Skies," the whole lifts with a psychedelic flair. "Hurts to Be You" yelps quirky to the strutting "Either or, It's All the Same" and closing guitar jangle "Don't You Lose" charms throughout. (11:45am, BMI stage)
