Power Pyramid - The God Drums

Power Pyramid doesn’t have much patience for nonsense. That appears to be the takeaway from the Oklahoma City quintet’s last 10 months, which brought The God Drums in September, the Insomnia EP in January and its latest, self-titled effort in July.

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.

Indie-pop band Of Montreal will join Starlight Mints as headliners at this year's Norman Music Festival, organizers announced last week.

In a posting on the festival's Facebook page, organizers said the Athens, Ga., band has "been around for many years, and have played Norman a few times in the past."

"There's a reason why they've had 5 million song plays on MySpace," organizers wrote. "They write great tunes, and put on a big show."

Other Main Stage performers will be chosen in the weeks to come, organizers wrote. Acts for the "Okie-Dirt" stage were also named for the April 25 festival, and include Brandon Jenkins, Todd Snider, Camille Harp, Travis Linville, Resident Funk and Blue Turtle Seduction.

Organizers hope to fill five stages with 50 regional, local and national touring bands for the free festival. Like last year's inaugural event, acts will perform on outdoor stages set up on Norman's Main Street and on stages inside Opolis and Sooner Theatre. More than 13,000 people attended that first fest, which featured a reunited Chainsaw Kittens and indie-rock choir The Polyphonic Spree. "Joe Wertz
