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.

NPR's 'From the Top' to record live taping at OCU

Rod Lott May 11th, 2011

Hosted by Christopher O’Reilly, NPR’s popular “From the Top” music program will record a live taping at 3 p.m. Sunday at Oklahoma City University’s Kirkpatrick Auditorium to air in September.

The Norman North High School Chorale was selected to be among the show’s slate of young performers from across the country. According to Susan Clark, development director for KCSC-FM 90.1, the group is “extremely excited” and will perform Eric Whitacre’s “Water Night,” under the direction of Tony Gonzalez.

“A radio show like ‘From the Top’ that has been on the air for over a decade is proof that classical music is not a dead language,” said Brad Ferguson, KCSC manager.

Aired on approximately 250 public radio stations nationwide, the show garners an audience of more than 700,000 listeners weekly. KCSC airs it 2 p.m. Sundays.

For tickets to the taping, call 208- 5227 or visit okcu.edu/ticketoffice. —Gazette staff
