TJ Mayes - "When Love Comes Down"

’50s era rock ’n’ roll had been long overdue for a rebirth. Thankfully, the stockpile of capable luminaries has not been in short supply over the past few years.

Boare - "playdatshit"

The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Broncho - "Class Historian"

Broncho has never been hurting in the hook department. The success of the trio’s 2011 debut, Can’t Get Past the Lips, was predicated mostly on its ability to marry melodies with kinetic guitar riffs and anarchic energy. Yet we’ve heard nothing to the degree of pure pop catchiness on display in “Class Historian,” the new single from Broncho’s upcoming sophomore album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman.

Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

Admirals - Amidst the Blue

Sometimes it helps to not be very good.

Some of the best albums and artists were born out of happy accidents owed to varying degrees of early suckage — the perfect note or chord for a song found by missing the one you are aiming for, failed mimicry of an idol bearing something entirely new and great instead.

There's a good reason one-third of Cross Canadian Ragweed's releases are live albums: It is first and foremost a live act.

Although lead singer and songwriter Cody Canada acknowledged the group's live albums are its best sellers because of the band's road reputation, the last two studio discs have crept up.

As the band prepares for the release of its new disc, "Mission California," what better way than to promote the record than with an Oklahoma City show, at a club they partially own, where the cost of the CD is also the price of admission?

NEW ALBUM
Formed in Yukon in 1994 and fermented up in Stillwater, CCR is comprised of four guys who grew up together, and continuously collaborate with an ever-expanding family circle of fellow musicians. For the new album, however, things changed.

"We went to California to get away from everybody we knew," Canada said. "That's the meaning of the title. It was our mission to get away and make the record."

Canada and his compadres expect to go down in a storm at Friday's Wormy Dog Saloon show. Being co-owners of the joint makes it friendly territory, and it has a conducive vibe made all the more noticeable because of the social lubricants consumed in quantity there.

"You've gotta get there right at showtime," Canada said, speaking as a performer. "Otherwise, you might get too drunk too quickly." "Tory Troutman
