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.

Veils

London's The Veils is calling Oklahoma City a temporary home because Chris Salyer, proprietor of CD Warehouse, provided the members with a headquarters for the remainder of their U.S. tour.

"It is where he keeps his cars," vocalist Finn Andrews said of their temporary residence. "It's a garage."

"It's more than a garage," bass player Sophia Burn corrected. "It's more like a museum."

The Veils also are using the space to rehearse, write, play video games and cavort with locals as they prepare to return to London to record.

CROWDING
Andrews said being able to settle in at their new digs in a foreign land is a beneficial break from the stifling congestion of the UK.

"In London, you're packed in like rats. All artists are clamoring for space, especially musicians who have lots of equipment and play with the volume really high," he said. "The situation we have in Oklahoma is completely unattainable in London without millions of dollars."

Added drummer Henning Dietz, "We're living in this space together, everything is set up, so whenever we feel like playing, we play. We play until four in the morning most nights. It's perfect for us."

ALCOHOL
Guitarist Dan Raishbrook said they are making the most of their extended stay in Oklahoma.

"We drink the 3.2 " drink a lot of it and never get drunk," Raishbrook said. "Chris (Salyer) has got Segways, which we ride to the gas station and the grocery store."

"They are a lot of fun," Burn added. "You look like a dick, but Segways are a lot of fun." "Charles Martin
