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.

Kierston White - Don't Write Love Songs

The Tequila Songbirds have become just as beloved as about any group around these parts. And how could they not?

Featuring a revolving cast of the Sooner State’s most badass female performers, it’s a power hour of some of the best songwriting coming out of central Oklahoma. Sure, they might not technically be family, but they are clearly a band of sisters all the same, bonded by the same brand of whiskey running through their veins.

Depth & Current - Dysrhythmia

"Overproduced" is a term thrown around all too indiscreetly nowadays, usually applied when the thing that sticks out about a song or album is how it sounds rather than how it is constructed. Yet some of the most compelling albums ever crafted embodied a certain aesthetic that was just as skillfully and meticulously put together as any Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record — which is to say production is as crucial to our enjoyment of music as much as anything else; it's also the most overlooked.

Weak Knees - “IceBevo”

Indie rock has been in a good place as of late. Not caring about being cool is the new cool, and a couple of dudes on guitar, bass and drums can make catchy, earworm songs without being armed to the gills with computer software and vintage synthesizers.

Peter Case is a songwriter's songwriter who took Bob Dylan's route backward, unplugging to go acoustic after doing the electric thing years with California power-poppers The Nerves and The Plimsouls. 

His latest album, "Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John," is stripped-down, but don't let the title's allusion to Sleepy John Estes fool you: It's not a blues disc.

"Sleepy John was just a hero of mine. It's my way of honoring him," Case said. "He was an inspiration because he wrote about contemporary issues."

STAGE PRESENCE
The one-time street musician will bring his Martin acoustic guitar along for a solo performance Sunday on N. McKinley Street " specifically, at The Blue Door.

Venue owner Greg Johnson said Case's dynamic shows contain not only early original songs and covers, but expert guitar-picking and funny stories.

"He commands a stage like no other, from gritty blues to wonderfully crafted pop-rock songs," Johnson said. "He literally connects with one person, then another, and sometimes walks through the audience singing. It's priceless. "¦ He is among a handful of truly great American songwriters."

Case said The Blue Door audience can expect an entertaining show with one caveat: "I do it with my own style," he said.
