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.

Snow Patrol is in the midst of a major worldwide surge in popularity, helped by opening for U2 on tour and having their breakout single, "Chasing Cars," appear on "Grey's Anatomy."
 
"Twenty-two million people watch 'Grey's Anatomy,' drummer Jonny Quinn said. "My girlfriend lives in Austin and that's how her whole office found out about Snow Patrol."
 
"Chasing Cars" didn't stand out as a single while they were recording, but they knew it was connecting when they started playing it on stage.
 
"The audience caught on to it pretty quickly, and usually an audience lets you know how it will work on a broader scale," he said.
 
WORLD DOMINATION
The band recently recorded a song for the "Spider-Man 3" soundtrack. Snow Patrol's ability to produce swelling emotions that are both faltering and urgent should mesh better with the tone of the franchise " whose previous soundtracks were led by Nickleback and Dashboard Confessional " and push the band further toward its ultimate goal.
 
"A complete world domination stadium tour," Quinn said. "We really aren't too worried about it. We let labels and agents worry about that. It is good to move up to bigger venues every time you return to a place. It lets you know things are moving along." "Charles Martin
