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.

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.

Tom Quinn's love of Pink Floyd has manifested into tribute band The Pink Floyd Experience.

Their intense stage show routinely tours the nation, complete with dazzling lighting effects, projection screens, smoke, surround sound and a huge inflatable pig.

"With the surround sound, you feel like you're in a huge set of earphones where just the sounds are just swirling all around," Quinn said. "The seats start to shake and your rib cage starts to rattle, and basically, you close your eyes and you're hearing the best of Pink Floyd from your record collection."

GUITAR HERO
Quinn said he was always fascinated by Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, and did his best to emulate his style.

"From the get-go, he was my guitar hero; he was my mentor," he said. "He was the guy I sought to play like and sound like."

He tried to emulate Gilmour's sound during his career as a professional musician, even when he had to play dance music at fraternity parties.

Eventually, Quinn moved to San Diego and started the first Pink Floyd cover band in the San Diego area before similar groups popped up around the world. "Bryan Mangieri
