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"

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.

Ty Kamm is the assistant manager at Joe's Place Fine Wine & Spirits in Norman, but you might recognize him as the showman fronting longtime local heroes Klipspringer.
 
"My discount comes in handy for the rock 'n' roll lifestyle," Kamm said.
 
BUSY, BUT EASY

For Kamm, the job has lasted nearly as long as his music career; he's been at Joe's for 15 years, and been making music for 17.
 
"I'm not getting rich at either, but I'm still making my music, and that was always my intent," he said. "It's a pretty stress-free life " really busy " but essentially stress free."
 
BEING A NOVELTY
He enjoys the notoriety of being a workplace celebrity, which he said his co-workers find amusing.
 
"They usually say they had no idea I had it in me," he said.
 
Kamm seems quite comfortable with his place at Joe's, and in the band.
 
"We realized a long time ago that we weren't going to be the next U2," he said. "We just make our silly tunes, and if some people like them, great. If they don't, then screw them. The beat goes on." "Tory Troutman
