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.

Soundcheck: Classic Series Concert Previews


Rod Lott October 12th, 2011

Ticketholders to Saturday’s performance of the Oklahoma City Philharmonic are urged to get there early — not to compete for seats, but to hear the story behind the strings.

Saturday marks the second of the group’s eight Classic Series Concert Previews, which are lectures that take place before showtime, in which local musicians and educators offer insights beyond what attendees will find in the program. At 7 p.m., an hour before pianist Jon Kimura Parker joins the Philharmonic for “Two Aspects of Romanticism,” Sergio Monteiro will preview the pieces. He is the newly appointed director of the piano department at Oklahoma City University’s Wanda Bass School of Music. Philharmonic music director Joel Levine (pictured) kicked off the series for the Sept. 24 season start.

Presented in conjunction with the Oklahoma City Orchestra League, all the Concert Previews are free. They are scheduled to take place before the Nov. 19 performance, and in 2012, on Jan. 7, Feb. 4, March 3, March 31 and May 19. For more information, call 842-5387 or visit okcphilharmonic.org. —Rod Lott
