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.

At the Jan. 8 Elvis Presley impersonator contest at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill, Brian Dunning proved he was the complete package, having:
" the moves,
" the look,
" the attitude and
" the pipes of the young Elvis.
 
His hair blown back in a tall pompadour and dressed in a simple black-and-white suit, Dunning ultimately won for best Overall and best Moves.
 
THE KING LIVES
"Rockabilly started with Elvis in 1954, and I've been a big fan of Elvis since I was a kid," Dunning said, as two elderly women cut into the interview.
 
"Excuse me, but I have to ask the kid a question," said one of them, somewhere in her 70s and flirting like a teenager. "How old are you?"
 
Dunning just cocked his head and gave a tilted smile, capturing the cocky, yet polite air of The King.
 
ON THE SIDE
The impersonation is just a side gig to his regular rockabilly act, Brian Dunning & The Rock N Roll Trio,
 
"I'm not ashamed of it. It works for me, and as long as people like it, I'll keep doing it," he said. "Charles Martin
