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.

Despite 65 years and counting as a performer, country music legend Charlie Louvin says he still hasn't reached the point where it feels like work.

"I'm from a generation where there's no such thing as work, as long as you enjoy what you're doing," said Louvin, who will perform Thursday at The Blue Door, 2805 N. McKinley, to promote his first album in 10 years.

HISTORY
Louvin, with his late brother, Ira, started singing live on radio stations in the early Forties, and in 1955 scored the first of 12 hits on the Billboard country chart.

After the brothers parted ways in 1964 and Ira's untimely death in 1965, Charlie Louvin went on to record 12 solo albums and rack up another six charting singles.

INFLUENCE
With the passage of time, the Louvin Brothers' legend grew, and their songs became touchstones for the new generation of alt-country musicians such as Uncle Tupelo and Emmylou Harris.

After the Louvin Brothers were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in October 2001, Charlie was invited to open on a national tour with Cheap Trick and Cake.

"I was afraid the audiences were gonna start yelling, 'Get that country stuff off the stage,' but they loved it," Louvin said. "C.G. Niebank
