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.

Chris Carrabba once said that during concerts, he'll find someone in the audience who really feels the music and he will have "eye sex" with them.

Oklahoma City audience members may " and many probably hope " to experience some "eye sexing" with Carrabba when his band Dashboard Confessional comes to Oklahoma Friday as part of the KJ103 Summer Jam.

THAT VOICE
Samantha Samuel said when she first heard Dashboard's music, it was a breath of fresh air.

"The thing I love most is Chris' voice is completely different. You can really hear the influence from Tom Petty, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen," she said. "It's cool to hear them come through in his own unique style."

Samuel said a big factor of what she loves about the band is the tone of the songs and Carrabba's voice.

"If you've heard a lot of their stuff, it's got this mellow, raw feel to it," she said. "Chris' voice is really clear and nice, but at the same time, the music has the raw emotional appeal. I dig that."

EMOTIONS
Alvin Figueroa said he's liked Carrabba's music before Carrabba even formed Dashboard. He agreed the acoustic sound of Dashboard's first material set it apart from other bands.

"I liked them initially because of the emotional effect. They definitely caused you to think of the words, but focus on meaning and emotion," he said. "They were taking this hard-core sound and bringing in acoustic sound." "Heather Caliendo
