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.

Kierston White - Don't Write Love Songs

The Tequila Songbirds have become just as beloved as about any group around these parts. And how could they not?

Featuring a revolving cast of the Sooner State’s most badass female performers, it’s a power hour of some of the best songwriting coming out of central Oklahoma. Sure, they might not technically be family, but they are clearly a band of sisters all the same, bonded by the same brand of whiskey running through their veins.

Depth & Current - Dysrhythmia

"Overproduced" is a term thrown around all too indiscreetly nowadays, usually applied when the thing that sticks out about a song or album is how it sounds rather than how it is constructed. Yet some of the most compelling albums ever crafted embodied a certain aesthetic that was just as skillfully and meticulously put together as any Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record — which is to say production is as crucial to our enjoyment of music as much as anything else; it's also the most overlooked.

Weak Knees - “IceBevo”

Indie rock has been in a good place as of late. Not caring about being cool is the new cool, and a couple of dudes on guitar, bass and drums can make catchy, earworm songs without being armed to the gills with computer software and vintage synthesizers.

Evanescence singer hopes to connect with OKC audience

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.
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
