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.

California-based indie-pop band Hellogoodbye began at Huntington Beach High School during 2001, when lead vocalist/guitarist Forrest Kline teamed up with keyboardist Jesse Kurvink to produce its brand of heart-on-sleeve synth-pop songs.

"I wasn't a bro or a surfer, and that's what was the primary at the school," Kline said. "The first couple years of high school, I didn't talk to many people or anything. I just had a few friends. The last few years of high school, I kind of started being generally social."

ALBUMS
Thanks to Internet airplay and online popularity, the band managed to play to crowds of hundreds in the Southern Californian scene before having an official release. That came in 2004.

In 2005, the band was featured on the reality show "The Real World," which Kline said exposed the band to people who usually watch TV instead of seeking out new music. He said MTV has helped, but he would like to think the relentless touring schedule helped just as much.

Last year, the band finally released its debut album, so far reaching 343,000 in sales; its single, "Here (In Your Arms)" has been certified gold. "Bryan Mangieri
