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.

For better or worse, the garage-rock act The Willowz has been lumped in with the California psychedelic scene.

"I think it's heavily related to the way we look," said vocalist and guitarist Richie James Follin. "We do occasionally do drugs, but we're trying to make music we like to listen to and that's not boring for us to play on tour."

TOURING
Due to the large amount of downtime involved with touring, Follin said he generally gets a lot of writing down, but rarely records.

"It doesn't really matter (when you write) " just when something inspires you, or extreme boredom," he said. "Being on tour, you can write all day, but when you want to turn it into something, you don't have your studio."

The boys will be bringing some extra recording gear with them on the road this time.

"We got a shitload of gear. We got two studios, hundreds of guitars, thousands of amps, trillions of "¦ we got a lot of shit," Follin said. "We're not worried about getting ripped off, though. We carry guns." "Charles Martin
