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.

Be prepared for a crazy kaleidoscope of psych-rock madness. The members of the Stillwater band, together since 2005, describe their sound as "hardcore and a little Oklahoma sex rock."

Founders Ryan Hendrix and Nick Turner, a London native, met 12 years ago at Oklahoma State University. Playing mostly local shows at first, the duo evolved to include a drummer and eventually added two more members.

Color is the driving force behind their inspiration. They became fascinated by Sir Isaac Newton's "Theory of Color and Sound" and decided to create albums that channeled a musical interpretation of a specific color. The band's first full-length, 2008's "F, Monday, Orange, February, Venus, Lunatic, 1 or 13," is a representation of orange. The second album, still in production, will be an interpretation of pink.

"'Orange' is supposed to be concept music expressed through children musicians. 'Pink' is what metal would have become if Black Sabbath had originally been a band of women instead of men," Hendrix said.

The group is well-known for the insanity and off-the-wall themes of its live shows. A previous set, dubbed "The Exercise Show," had the band working out while being painted by audience members and having sections of hair and clothes cut off. "Emily Hopkins
