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.

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.

A native of Baltimore, Amy Speace has a background in acting, and even once studied voice in hopes of an operatic future. She not only has performed Shakespeare, but also taught it.

But she chucked it all for a $50 guitar from a pawnshop and a late start as a singer/songwriter. Speace's first solo disc, 2002's "Fable," was financed completely by devoted fans, and set her career as a solo artist in motion.

You can size up Speace for yourself when she and her band, The Tearjerks, walk through The Blue Door 8 p.m. Thursday.

TOURING
Though she tours most of the year, Speace usually test-drives her material with her friends before playing in front of audiences as a means of quality control. 

"I have this group of really extraordinary friends who are also amazing songwriters, and we get together every six months or so to do a few days together or a writing retreat, where we do group writing exercises and we share songs, and put them up for critiques," she said.

Having just completed a tour of Europe where some people "get" Americana and some don't, Speace and The Tearjerks are looking forward to a friendly welcome in Oklahoma.

So give Speace a chance. "Tory Troutman
