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.

Kierston White - Don't Write Love Songs

The Tequila Songbirds have become just as beloved as about any group around these parts. And how could they not?

Featuring a revolving cast of the Sooner State’s most badass female performers, it’s a power hour of some of the best songwriting coming out of central Oklahoma. Sure, they might not technically be family, but they are clearly a band of sisters all the same, bonded by the same brand of whiskey running through their veins.

Depth & Current - Dysrhythmia

"Overproduced" is a term thrown around all too indiscreetly nowadays, usually applied when the thing that sticks out about a song or album is how it sounds rather than how it is constructed. Yet some of the most compelling albums ever crafted embodied a certain aesthetic that was just as skillfully and meticulously put together as any Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record — which is to say production is as crucial to our enjoyment of music as much as anything else; it's also the most overlooked.

Weak Knees - “IceBevo”

Indie rock has been in a good place as of late. Not caring about being cool is the new cool, and a couple of dudes on guitar, bass and drums can make catchy, earworm songs without being armed to the gills with computer software and vintage synthesizers.

Tuesday's show at Norman's Opolis marks the first time playing in Oklahoma for the Miami, Fla., indie pop band The Postmarks.
 
Yet the band has ties with Flaming Lips manager Scott Booker and the Edmond-based music label he co-founded, World's Fair.
 
"We just sort of take each city as it comes along and kind of see what kind of riches it has to unveil," said Christopher Moll, chief songwriter.
 
REVIEWS
The band has received several favorable nods from the press, including rave reviews from Pitchfork Media and Spin magazine.
 
"I'm honored by it," he said. "It's something I've been working at a really long time, and it's just kind of shocking that it's kind of coming together the way it is. I'm kind of speechless, appreciative and just hoping that I have the opportunity to keep on doing this."
 
SUCCESS
Success didn't come overnight, however, as Moll has been doing music seriously since the late Eighties. He is 37 now, but he feels that he's at the right age for recognition, whereas a 19-year-old wouldn't know how to deal with the strain popularity produces.
"I don't know if I would have it any other way now," he said. "I'm really a firm believer things are meant to be the way that they happen." "Bryan Mangieri
