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.

It seems that the clock and rock are about to stop for local band Minutes Too Far.

Ending an eight-year run, the Bethany pop-rock outfit bid farewell to fans and its 22,000-plus Internet friends through a posting on its MySpace page.

"We've been all over this beautiful country, met hundreds of amazing guys and gals, and played our music in every kind of dive you can imagine," band members wrote in a post late November. "But as all great (journeys) end, so must ours."

STILL FRIENDS
The band members insist they are still friends, writing that Minutes Too Far's split is not a "divorce where the parents try to act like they don't hate each other."

"We've been doing this for a very long time now, and just couldn't figure out what to do next. The decision to say good-bye is nothing personal," they wrote.

In an e-mail, guitarist Blake Fischer said he and other members will continue on with separate projects and are eager to make music with "no strings attached" without having to worry about "business consequences." Fischer, also an established local singer and songwriter, said he will concentrate on performing his solo material and hopes to complete and release an album he has been "slowly working on."

Saturday's "farewell show" at The Conservatory was canceled due to a band member's illness, drummer Kris Monier said, but will be rescheduled in the coming weeks, bringing the band and large local fan base together for a party and proper send-off. "Joe Wertz
