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.

Jimmy Webb, an Oklahoma native best known for his continuing career as one of America's most highly regarded and prolific popular songwriters, is accustomed to performing in venues of all sizes. However, he said he has a special regard for performing in the intimate surroundings of small spaces that place him close to the audience.

"My favorite gigs are the little ones " they're really just a lot more fun," Webb said. "It's a much more sterile experience if you're on a big stage. "¦ But when you're in the same small room with someone, you can see them and they can see you. You can see their eyes; you can see their smiles or their tears."

BROADWAY
Webb has lived by the ocean on Long Island, N.Y., in recent years, while his participation continues in the creation of two very different Broadway stage shows:
" one based on the movie Western "Shane,"
" the other based on the Robert DeNiro film "A Bronx Tale."

"Both shows are going slowly. There's not a lot to report," he said. "Whenever I've met someone who's gotten a Broadway show up and running, whether it's done well or closed, I think it's a magnificent accomplishment."

In May, Webb, was presented with an honorary doctorate of musical arts by Oklahoma City University, and in lieu of a speech, performed for 30 minutes.

"I'm not sure they've ever done that at their commencement," Webb said with a laugh. "But they specifically asked for it." "C.G. Niebank
