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.

Maserati

The members of Athens, Ga., four-piece Maserati forego vocals in favor of bringing their expansive melodies and muscular, yet intuitive percussion to the spotlight. They blend ambient rhythms and modern dance rock with a Seventies groove to create highly emotive tracks on its latest release, "Inventions for the New Season."

"When we have an idea (for a song), we have a couple key points we want to hit," guitarist Coley Dennis said. "We have a couple hooks and need to bridge them, so we'll have the foundation. It's pretty easy to keep it where we want without getting too off base."

NEW ALBUM
Maserati specifically used the new album to test song structures, seeking out various ways to introduce and fade out instruments as well as playing with or defying basic pop formulas.

"We're not interested in doing the same thing twice. We want to keep evolving," Dennis said. "The first song that inspired us for this album was 'Inventions.' We had a long repetition of guitars " five or six minutes go by before the drums kick in. We wanted to have a lot of space building with just guitars."

Lately, instrumental bands are finding solid footing and audiences for their music.
"The crowds are pretty diverse. They're not too strange," Dennis said. "We get a lot of younger kids into the instrumental bands coming out now, then you get 40-year-olds who were into Pink Floyd when they were their kids' age." "Charles Martin
