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.

University of Oklahoma student radio station, The WiRe, has officially hit the airwaves. Now broadcasting on 1710 AM, the WiRe has expanded its reach past the campus to much of Norman.
 
Program and Music Director John Cope said the station filed paperwork for an FM frequency, which didn't work out.
 
"It was either get on AM now, or wait for an FM channel to open up," Cope said. "We just thought it would be best to get going as soon as we could, and it sounds pretty good.
 
PLANS TO EXPAND
The station had previously been streaming over the Internet and through TV4OU's secondary audio programming channel.  
 
The station has more than 20 DJs who play music six to eight hours a day live, Cope said, although music, sports and talk shows are broadcast 24/7.
 
The AM signal reaches most of Norman, Cope said, but the station is hoping to add transmitters in the future to boost coverage.
 
"We have more people listening now, so this is a lot better," he said. "This will allow so many more people to hear." "Joe Wertz
