Power Pyramid - The God Drums

Power Pyramid doesn’t have much patience for nonsense. That appears to be the takeaway from the Oklahoma City quintet’s last 10 months, which brought The God Drums in September, the Insomnia EP in January and its latest, self-titled effort in July.

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.

The Walkmen, Peelander-Z to headline Norman Music Festival 4


Local bands to be announced this week

Stephen Carradini February 14th, 2011

Norman Music Festival has announced via Facebook that NYC indie-rock band The Walkmen will be headlining NMF4, scheduled for April 28-30. Japanese pop-punk act Peelander-Z also will be playing the main stage.

According to Holly Jones, NMF publicity chair, the approximately 150 local bands playing the festival will be announced in the next week. In all, some 200 musicians will perform on 12 stages.

The festival coordinators are playing coy with the rest of the main stage, as well as the headliner of the second stage.

“We’ll release them as we feel like it,” Jones said. “Probably not in the next week or so.”

She also noted that Facebook and Twitter will be most likely places for news of main-stage bands to break.

“We like to show love to our fans,” Jones said.

The full schedule will be announced in the beginning of April.

The Walkmen last played in the metro in October 2009 at Meacham Auditorium in Norman, while Peelander-Z played The Conservatory last October. —Stephen Carradini
