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.

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.

The songs pack a heavy punch, with Chris Wiser and Rob Martin doing more with just an organ and drums than other bands do with a full rhythm section.
 
READY, SET, TOUR
Martin recently recorded with Steve Burns (aka Steve from "Blue's Clues") on a "top-secret project" he couldn't go into, but he did divulge "it was the most fun I've ever had in a studio."
 
The Allstars will be busy this year, touring the country and ping children's album for a summer tour of Oklahoma libraries:
" the Pioneer Library System in June, and
" the Metro Library System in July.
 
BRING 'DA FUNK
Over the years, they've gotten to play with lots of musicians, but their favorite session was with Fred Tackett of Little Feat, who worked with Bob Dylan and Frank Zappa.
 
"That was the funkiest we've ever been," Wiser said. "We haven't been that funky since."
 
"We won't ever be that funky again," Martin smirked. "Charles Martin
