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.

Seattle punk band The Pharmacy  is in the midst of a sprawling tour that will hit around 70 venues coast to coast. They are stopping at the Opolis on the way through, in part to pick up a tourmate, Mickey Reece, the lone gunman of Norman's El Paso Hot Button.

"We met him in Ft. Worth or somewhere around there," said Pharmacy drummer Brendhan Bowers. "He offered to let us stay at his house "¦ then he got us to work with him on an R&B song. At first we weren't sure, but then he played a beat on his drum machine and told us to go for it, so we started freestyle rapping. You can probably find it somewhere on the Internet."

EXPERIMENTATION
The track, "100 Moof," also features Kimya Dawson of The Moldy Peaches and the only known copy exists on Reece's laptop.

It was just another experiment for the band to stretch itself musically. The guys all play each other's instruments, which then provides a well of ideas on how to arrange the guitar, drum and keyboard parts.

"(Guitarist) Scottie (Yoder) is always writing a lot of new songs, so he will teach them to us while we're on the road," said Bowers. "It's a world of music " you can think about it forever." "Charles Martin
