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.

Wade Bowen's latest record didn't come easily for the Texas country music artist. He felt lost during the songwriting and recording process.

"I went through a lot of stuff, recording this record and writing it," he said. "I was going through a lot of different emotions and stuff. I think the overall theme is being lost, trying to find your way."

The record, "Lost Hotel," took nearly three years to complete. While recording, Bowen met his wife and eventually had a child. It had been five years since his last studio recording, "Try Not to Listen," and there was some anxiety about this latest release.

"I did get frustrated toward the end whether it was going to get finished or not," Bowen said. "I think it was worth the wait."

COUNTRY ROOTS
Despite the debt Bowen owes to rock music, he considers himself a country artist.

"My roots are heavily, heavily embedded in country music," he said. "I'm proud to carry the country music flag."

Of course, to achieve the goal of waving this flag while touring the country he must forfeit time with his family.

According to Bowen, he spends 200 days out of the year touring, which is hard on his family, but he said that he was lucky enough to marry a wife who understood the business and the sacrifice that comes along with it.

"I'm very lucky," he said. "Bryan Mangieri
