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.

In today's technology-driven world, it's feasible for young, inexperienced musicians to find ways to get their music to the masses.

Kids are so computer savvy that most of them can easily navigate amateur computer recording programs, convert their creations into MP3s, throw them up on the Internet, and voila!

But the art of studio recording is a process that most of those young musicians know little about. Which is something that the teachers at Charlie Rayl Music Lessons of Norman hope to change with their new program, "Rock Clinic 2."

PROCESS
"Most kids have computers, which means they have the capabilities of recording the music they're writing right in their bedroom," said music teacher Chad Hogue. "But for them to be able to walk into a real recording studio and be involved in every process from tracking to mastering, I feel as though they leave there with a much better understanding of the time and effort it actually takes for a band to record a full album."

Hogue said it's a great feeling to see the looks on their faces over a new song they've learned or the first time they hear their band's recording on a CD.

"To see them booking shows and putting together press kits at such an early age has given me a sense of accomplishment," he said. "Hopefully they'll continue the path they're on to become the next wave of amazing musicians to come out of the Norman music scene." "Graham Lee Brewer
