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.

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.

Sugar-Free-Allstars

The Sugar Free Allstars' quirky wit and bouncy melodies has been scoring adult fans throughout the state. But now with "Dos Niños," their first album for kids, the Allstars are setting their sights to the under-5-foot crowd with a public library tour that will be hitting 24 libraries in two months.

"The Arts Council (of Oklahoma City) called and asked if we'd be willing to do a library tour," organist Chris Wiser said. "It's exciting for us because it's a completely different avenue that we've never explored."

DIFFERENT AUDIENCE
Much like They Might Be Giants, their music always appealed to children even when the subject matter wasn't kid-friendly. Making "Dos Niños" wasn't much of a stretch, considering two of the songs the kids responded to the most " "Stinky" and "Spider" " were songs they were performing long before they'd thought about a children's album.

Wiser said that even though the audience has changed, their performances haven't, save a restriction on salty language. With short attention spans, high levels of crowd chatter and the occasional thrown object, the audience behaves much the same at a bar as they do at a library.

"We're used to playing to drunk adults," Wiser said, "so there's not a lot of difference except we get done before 4 in the morning." "Charles Martin
