Power Pyramid - The God Drums

Power Pyramid doesn’t have much patience for nonsense. That appears to be the takeaway from the Oklahoma City quintet’s last 10 months, which brought The God Drums in September, the Insomnia EP in January and its latest, self-titled effort in July.

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.

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.
