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.

Most audiences are lucky to receive a performance from an artist who can play one instrument well, but Brooks Chambers is a one-man band. And although he hails from Texas, there's something about Oklahoma City that keeps him coming back.

When he first started touring this year, his main goal was to find markets that could serve as homes away from home.

Oklahoma City made the cut.

"It seems like the people there know good music, but they're not so saturated with music that they've become jaded," Chambers said. "In Austin, it's so much harder to get people excited and singing along, because people are standing there with their arms crossed thinking about all the other artists in Austin who sell 60,000 records."

MARRIAGE
Chambers released his first five-song EP in January. The tracks on "Long Story Short" include lyrics about love, fairy tales and the everyday stories of ordinary people.

"I'm very much inspired by the whimsy of the ordinary and married people loving each other and being excited about being married and living very normal happy lives," he said.

It's only appropriate that his next OKC show will be at his friend's wedding reception Friday at LiT Lounge. But this show is not just for the friends and family of the bride and groom; everyone is invited.

"It's so fun doing a show associated with a wedding," Chambers said. "I feel like it gives me the leeway and leverage I need to wear my seersucker suit, which is always a spiritual experience for me." "Lauren Parajon
