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.

Seven local acts are set to rock Norman at Friday’s Sooner Soundcheck concert

Courtney Silva March 23rd, 2011

In order to get students and the public alike better acquainted with the local music scene, the University of Oklahoma’s Campus Activities Council Concert Series presents Sooner Soundcheck.

The music mini-festival will take place Friday off Asp Avenue, between the Adams and Walker dorms on the OU campus. Seven bands will play throughout the day and into the night.

Derek Knowlton, vocalist and guitarist for The Pretty Black Chains, said that it’s good for people to know what other kind of music is out there.

“It’s important for people to be aware of local bands so that they can be supported by the community as much as possible,” he said. “We like to branch out and play wherever we can to get our music out there. I think this show is going to be a lot of fun.”

With free admission, Sooner Soundcheck kicks off at 3 p.m. and continues to 11:30 p.m. Others plugging in include The Hex, Sherree Chamberlain, Jabee, The Workweek, Josh Sallee and Skating Polly.
