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.

Nashville Pussy doesn't want to be taken seriously

Blaine Cartwright, lead singer and guitarist for Nashville Pussy, said, "I consider us a pretty juvenile band. Mature means better to some people; to me, it's just like maybe you're starting to be boring."

Atlanta's Nashville Pussy is far from boring. If anything, the band goes out on a limb to produce interesting testaments to deep-fried Southern rock, where sex and drugs are applauded in song.

"I'd hate anyone to take us seriously. That would be kind of scary," he said. "They'd be crazy anyway to take us seriously."

CURRENT TOUR
On its current tour, Nashville Pussy plans to stop in cities that the band rarely sees, including a stop in Oklahoma City.

"It's been one of those places that we don't want people to think we're avoiding it," Cartwright said. "I'm from a small town in Kentucky, and I know what it's like to have bands not come to your town, and I look forward to coming back (to Oklahoma)."

NEW ALBUM
Fellow members " drummer Jeremy Thompson, bassist Karen Cuda and lead guitarist Ruyter Suys " are in the process of working on ideas for a new album tentatively to be released in 2008.

Suys is also Cartwright's wife, which he said is a rewarding experience.

"It's better than having to call home and get in trouble for things she thinks you're doing," he said. "Now she can just see what I'm up to and get mad at me there in person." "Bryan Mangieri
