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.

11:45 P.M., Saturday, Blackwatch Studios Stage

Odis arrived with a bang. The act debuted its first CD, "Feel," in 2008 to a sold-out show at the House of Blues in its Dallas hometown.

A mere two months later, Quick magazine named "Feel" as the Big Album of 2008, and The Fort Worth Star-Telegram designated it as one of the top 20 albums of 2008. Odis quickly gained attention in the Metroplex, with numerous local media outlets singing its praises and its fan base increasing steadily by the day.

The group has been touring for the past two and a half years, but plans to buckle down at the studio to release an EP in fall 2010 or early 2011. Eager for a distribution departure, Odis is contemplating a digital release of the EP to gauge the fans' reaction to the evolved sound. A full album will emerge sometime in 2011.

Odis' electric pop vibe evokes visions of the latest Maroon 5 blended with Prince and Curtis Mayfield. The band describes itself as "rock n' soul" with a "unique, retro rock" twist. "Emily Hopkins
