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.

Lip service

In which a podcaster drunk-dials a rock star.

Stephen Carradini July 13th, 2011

No Fun Intended’s live podcast Thursday at The 51st Street Speakeasy, 1114 N.W. 51st, has scored one hot guest: The Flaming Lips’ ringmaster, Wayne Coyne.

It started when Ryan Drake, who runs the podcast with Allan Pellegrin, mentioned Coyne in a tweet.

“I think it was around the time he joined Twitter,” Drake said. “I don’t think he knew how to use Twitter, and he accidentally followed me because I said something about him.”

Several tweet conversations later, Coyne agreed to a podcast interview.

Well, in principle. Then it fizzled out until Drake ran into Coyne at The Drunken Fry and scored his number.

“I’ve drunk-dialed him so many times,” said Drake, who has expanded from initial drunken podcasts into stand-up comedy. That’s why Drake told Coyne the live interview needed to be on a Thursday, when OKC Comedy has a standing Speakeasy gig.

Although it wasn’t yet spring, July 14 was the first date that both No Fun Intended guys and Coyne were available. In the meantime, No Fun Intended kept busy interviewing people like rapper Johnny Polygon and comedian Rob Delaney. The podcast currently sits at approximately 2,000 listeners, although Thursday’s interview with Coyne could raise that.

Aside from the Q-and-A, the 8:30 p.m. event includes music from Deerpeople and comedy by BradChad Porter. Admission is free.
