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.

Indie-folk act Cheyenne had recorded some tracks in New York that the members weren't satisfied with, so front man Jennings came back to Norman to fill out the rest of the album.

Here, he tapped the talents of musician friends, including former bandmate Ryan Lindsey, and to record at Chad Copeland's Black Watch Studios.

"It's funny: We're in the lion's den of coolness and just not feeling like we fit in at all. Especially (bandmate) Ben (King) and I, we got real interested in exploring " this is really hokey " but our heritage," Jennings said.

Since moving to New York, Jennings said he's grown more confident in his vocals. Now that they can glance back at their distant hometown as outsiders, they've gained a new perspective.

"Oklahoma themes are easier to write about and analyze when you're away," Jennings said. "You start looking at Oklahoma from the point of view of the East Coast because you're there." "Charles Martin
