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.

Noon Sunday, Main Stage, 100 Block of West Main Street

Eerie guitar riffs and ethereal vocals blend into peaceful harmony for Norman-based Gentle Ghost.

The band evolved from the mind of Sethy McCarroll, current drummer for Toil and Trouble and bassist for both Student Film and Umbrellas. For his latest project he organized, he put himself on guitar and lead vocals and works as the sole songwriter. The rest of the band was handpicked to complement and tolerate his musical approach and creative style: guitarist and vocalist Brady Smith, bassist and vocalist Scott Harper, pianist (and Oklahoma Gazette music writer) Becky Carman, guitarist Tyler Huskerson and drummer Adam Huskerson.

On its MySpace page, the group describes itself on as "born of artfulness and intent manifested in raucous feedback, sweet melody, visual stimulation and physical strain." For now, McCarroll is keeping his creation semi-off the spotlight, playing mostly small-scale, local shows with the possibility of some regional gigs in the near future.

The group debuted its first album, "Family," last week in a limited release after a live performance during Record Store Day at Guestroom Records in Norman. "Emily Hopkins
