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.

Since 1982, Joe Queer has been a part of the punk rock underground as leaders of The Queers.
 
Today, after being cited as a major influence by Green Day, My Chemical Romance and Blink-182, he wonders where the fun has gone.
 
"Calling yourselves The Queers is a gateway to comedy," Queer explained. "That's the main thing that I think is missing from punk rock today: a sense of humor. Where is the fun? I just think that's what punk rock is all about: fun."
 
SHOCK THE MUNKI
This year, The Queers will release their ninth record, "Munki Brain," and touring to support it.
 
Their music descends from the bubble-gum/nose-picker style of The Ramones' pop-punk of the late Seventies.
 
"The last tour The Queers did was with Marky Ramone in South America," Queer said. "That was real big 'rock star' stuff. That was the wildest tour ever."
 
ALL THINGS MUST PASS
"The Queers won't go on forever," Queer said, citing a new marriage and a desire to return to the restaurant business. He said he just wants to write a book and play occasionally.
 
"I wanna walk my dog, make pea soup and watch 'Cops.' Soon, that's what I'm gonna do," he said. "H. Barry Zimmerman
