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.

Indie country rockers Neva Dinova will perform at The Conservatory in Oklahoma City Thursday in support of its latest release, "You May Already Be Dreaming," a layered mix of slow picking guitars, imaginative lyrics ("I'm walking through traffic like I'm a prophet / There's no one to stop it"), echoing piano and traditional country sounds that fuse with messy guitar jams.

Playing in a community of like-minded musicians in the thriving music metropolis of Omaha, Neb., is well and good. But ask the members of alt-country outfit Neva Dinova about the perks of performing alongside that scene's leading songwriter.

GETTING ON THE MAP
In 2004, Neva Dinova recorded "One Jug of Wine, Two Vessels," a gem of a split EP with acclaimed Nebraska natives Bright Eyes that more or less put the band on the map.

"We sold about 1,200 of our first CD. And the split sold 35,000," said front man and guitarist Jake Bellows. "So, you know, basically 30 times the listenership. We've been lucky for different bands to expose us to their fans: Cursive, The Good Life, Bright Eyes as well. But that split, for which we are really grateful, gave a chance for us to get to a lot more people."

Despite the open Midwestern landscapes evoked in many of the band's songs, Neva Divona often makes music geared more toward headphone listeners than modern cowboys looking for a good line dance.   "Danny Marroquin
