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.

Losing your record label funding and a big-name producer sometimes can be the best scenario. 
 
Just ask Walter Salas-Humara, guitarist and vocalist of The Silos. The stalwart rockers were poised to record 20 days when Dualtone Records pulled the funding, leaving the band with enough money to eke out four days.
 
"We actually didn't listen to playback. We just played the songs, and if it felt right with the headphones on, we would just roll it back," Salas-Humara said.
 
20 YEARS STRONG
The Silos' current tour should warm the hearts of middle-aged alt-rockers who remember when R.E.M. was on I.R.S. Records. Salas-Humara said the set list will include highlights of the back catalog of The Silos' storied alt-country career, which commenced with a "best New American Band" nod from Rolling Stone back in 1988.
 
"It makes me feel mature," he said, putting that critical acclaim into perspective in 2007. "It makes me feel grateful I'm still alive. It went by really fast. I must say, it doesn't seem like 20 years, that's for sure." "Rob Collins
