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.

The 20th Blue Fish Companion party/music show recently was held at Norman's Red Room.
"It comes with a built-in crowd," said Quentin Bomgardner, founder. "When I contact people, they want to play Blue Fish and that is why. You want to play in front of people. As a musician, it stinks to play in front of 10 people on a Tuesday night."
The Blue Fish began as a simple house party which outgrew the house. The party moved to the American Legion Hall and bands started playing. From there, the Blue Fish has migrated from club to club as it drew waves of new fans.
"I met the girl I lost my virginity to at a Blue Fish party," Chase Spivey of Ghosts of Monkshood said. "Blue Fish shakes people out of apathy toward the scene now and then. Quentin has a good ear for picking bands and it's an event everyone knows about and everyone thinks is cool."
Blue Fish's most notable " and notorious " event came when the party doubled as a reunion show for Tyson Meade's pre-Chainsaw Kittens band Defenestration at the Sooner Theatre. It got shut down.
"(Hundreds of) people showed up and a bunch of people tried to smoke in there, and we had problems with security," Bomgardner said. "It has become a favorite moment of mine, but at the time it wasn't." "Charles Martin
