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.

New bands are born every second, so every little step to set one apart helps. Recently, high-energy modern rockers Hush Hush, Commotion got a big nudge in the right direction. The Oklahoma City five-piece won first place in this year's KHBZ-FM 94.7 "The Buzz's" March Bandness Battle of the Bands.

The band took the prize money straight into Norman's Bell Labs studio to cut an EP.

"It was fun," said front man Scott Michael. "But at the same time, it was a stressful time."

FUTURE PLANS
"Things never go according to plan," keyboardist Chris Lusk added. "Even though it didn't go according to plan, we are very content with the final product."

They will be unveiling the finished EP at a CD release show Saturday at the Bricktown Ballroom. As part of the prize package, they also got a spot at this year's Dfest in Tulsa, which will put them in front of industry reps scouting out new talent.

"The next step for the band is to get out on the road as much as possible following the CD release show, with more extensive touring in the fall and winter time," said Michael. "Get mostly in the Midwest and branch out more toward East and West coasts just to get our name out there." "Charles Martin
