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.

'White' noise


White Denim sews up a tuneful blend of psych rock, blues, punk, soul, jazz and jam

Ryan Querbach June 1st, 2011

Austin, Texas-based indie rockers White Denim are set to play Saturday at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, 555 Elm in Norman.

White Denim

The event is a celebration of the reinstallation of modern art into the museum’s Sandy Bell Gallery, following renovations. The staff thought White Denim was a good fit for such a celebration, according to museum spokesperson Michael Bendure. “We felt like it was a really nice way to complement the contemporary modern art,” he said.

Booked in conjunction with the recent Norman Music Festival, the 7:30 p.m. free show will be FJJMA’s first on its front lawn, Bendure said.

A day earlier, from 5 to 9 p.m., live music will be provided by The Eighth Street Trio, an ensemble of University of Oklahoma School of Music instructor Ricardo Coelho de Souza. For more information, call 325-3272 or visit ou.edu/fjjma. —Ryan Querbach
