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.

Slava, the Oklahoma City International Folk Dancers' performance group, has performed dancers from around the world since the early Eighties.
 
Joan Chambers, who has been folk dancing since 1968, said, "The folk dance group is a very close-knit group of people, and we've been sort of a family for years. I think of it as a village " a small village of our own that meets every Monday night."
 
From 7-10 p.m. every Monday, the dancers meet at First Unitarian Church, 600 N.W. 13th. At every session, the hardwood floor there echoes footsteps and music from around the world, as well as nonstop socializing.
 
DANCES THE WORLD OVER
Since its inception in the early Eighties, Slava has performed all over the state of Oklahoma at locales and events ranging from nursing homes to the Festival of the Arts, Global Oklahoma and 21 years of WinterTales.
 
"The performance group is a service to the community," said Beverly Rapp, Slava member and public relations director. "It's a way to let people know that we're here, and to interest the public in coming and joining in on folk dancing.
 
"Also, it's entertaining (and) provides a bit of culture, because people get an opportunity to see Serbian dances, Romanian dances, Israeli dances, and they're not going to be able to see that anywhere else." "Timothy Bradford
