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.

Based in Austin, Texas, singer-songwriter Patrice Pike is proud for being known as an "eclectic" artist, mixing guitar-oriented rock with soulful singing.
 
It must be working because Pike landed a spot on the CBS reality show "Rock Star: Supernova" last year, where she competed for a chance to be lead singer in a band featuring former Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
 
"They wanted to bring rock to mainstream TV. I liked that a lot more than being in the band they were auditioning for," Pike said. "It was fun for me, though, because my whole intention in playing music is communicating. And being able to play music for millions of people around the world, eventually being able to play my own music there ... I mean, who's gonna say no to that?"
 
AWARDS WINNER
While Pike didn't win on the show, she was this year's big winner at the Austin Music Awards, where she won Musician of the Year and three other awards, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
 
"In Austin, you don't win awards for being on TV. It can actually wreck your credibility. So, it was really validating for me," she said. "I'm a musician. I'm also a writer. I love the art of writing and communication through words." "Tracy M. Rogers
