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.

One Tree Hill' singer plans Norman show

If you haven't seen Ryan Lindsey live, chances are you've already heard him. After signing a publishing deal, his songs have been featured in the strangest of places, from the soundtrack to indie film "American Teen" and The CW's "One Tree Hill" to finding airtime in Starbucks, Old Navy and The Gap.

"I've seen an increase in awareness of me from people, whether on MySpace or iTunes or whatever, but it hasn't been huge," Lindsey said. "When I first got those things, I was excited, and then I realized that they don't mean anything unless they work. It's better than not having my music played at The Gap, but you just hope some person shopping is going to hear it, like it and then tell everyone about it. Then come see me play at Opolis. That has to keep happening to make a big difference."

It should be noted, however, that even if you have already seen Lindsey, it might be time to take another look. The singer joins Umbrellas and Brine Webb for a 9 p.m. Friday show at Norman's Opolis, 113 N. Crawford.

Of late, Lindsey's one-man act has frequently fleshed out live into a full band, lending an entirely different to sound to his older material, as well as giving him a greater sonic spectrum for his new songs. Just don't expect to hear all of those fresh tunes right away.

"I'm working on a lot of new songs, trying to figure out what to do with them," he said. "I'm fighting between just getting them all out there or being 'smart' and waiting for the right time, but when's the right time? Right?"

Tickets for Friday's show are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. "Becky Carman
