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.

Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee looks forward to bringing rock to out-of-the-way places that need it most.
 
"Not that Oklahoma City is the middle of nowhere, but as compared to L. A. or Chicago," Lee said. "It's more fun to play Salt Lake City because the fans are so excited because they need that release in their life."
 
Lee said the band, which hails from Little Rock, Ark., has a special relationship with middle-America audiences.
 
"I think that isolation breeds creativity. It's a lot of boredom. Not having anything to do but go to Wal-Mart and Barnes & Noble at night makes you want to stay home and write music," she said.
 
NEW OUTLOOK
After several bleak singles, Evanescence's new album, "The Open Door," reflects Lee's new emotional outlook of optimism.
 
"It takes a lot of bravery to expose such hopeful feelings," she said. "I'm a lot happier now. The new album shares a lot of things, but it has a lot of aggression and baggage. But by the end of it, I felt awesome."
 
Lee said she is thankful audiences can connect to the music, which she sees as a type of therapy.
 
"It's venting my deepest fears and sorrows," she said. "It's also love, but a lot of it is venting. A lot of people relate to our music; it's something to connect to. It's encouraging them to be empowered." "Joshua Michael Torres
