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.

When vibrant singer/songwriter Antje Duvekot took the stage last year in Norman's Winter Wind concert series, things weren't exactly going her way. The weather was bad, she was exhausted from traveling, and her guitar was lost at the airport.

But the German-born performer took it all in stride, borrowed a guitar from one of the locals, and put on a fantastic show for a capacity crowd at the Performing Arts Studio in the historic Santa Fe Train Depot.

"I loved my trip to Oklahoma, even though my guitar didn't make it," said Duvekot. "I can't wait to come back. I was just telling my press agent that two of my favorite places from my tour last year were Oklahoma and Canada."

WINNING STREAK
The Winter Wind crowd must have loved her, too, for Duvekot was invited to return to Norman for Sunday's encore performance. And this time, she'll have a new guitar with her: a Gibson Hummingbird.

"I do worry about taking it on the plane, though," she said.

Duvekot, who now lives in Boston, has big-league folk credentials:
" She won the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Competition;
" The Boston Globe named her debut studio CD, "Big Dream Boulevard," as the best folk album of the year; and
" Bank of America recently used one of her songs for a commercial.

"That was quite a surprise," said Duvekot.

And it didn't hurt financially either, she admitted. "Jim Chastain
