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.

A free screening of an award-winning nature documentary will be held Thursday at the Oklahoma City Zoo. "America's Lost Landscape: The Tallgrass Prairie," will unspool 6:30 p.m. at the zoo's Rosser Conservation Education Center.

The Nature Conservancy's 2005 film explores a prairie ecosystem mired in a complex relationship with humans. "America's Lost Landscape" is narrated by actress Annabeth Gish and combines archival footage with arresting, sweeping panoramas of scavenged prairies.

The tallgrass prairie was among the largest American landscape features prior to settlement in the 1820s " a 240 million-acre habitat that was drastically transformed into farmland in just 70 years.

Filmmaker David O'Shields argues that settlers eager to change and tame the land altered the prairie's relationship with its original inhabitants, American Indians. Throughout the hour-long film, O'Shields illustrates the need for conservation and sustainable farming techniques.

Admission is free. Moviegoers should enter through the zoo's Education Center, located at the east end of the parking lot, 2101 N.E. 50th. For more information, call 858-8557. "Joe Wertz
