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.

With St. Louis-based Riddle of Steel having finished recording its third album, guitarist and vocalist Andrew Elstner expounded upon the task of choosing a moniker for the new release through a simile.

"We've been throwing around some ideas, but I don't know if I want to give you a label yet," Elstner said. "It's like trying to name your band. Once it's there, it's gonna stick. It's like getting a tattoo or something, you know."

The rock band's label has given the band much freedom to do what it wants, he said. He feels good about being label mates with Oklahoma bands like Traindodge and Gravity Propulsion System. In fact, Traindodge will be joining Riddle of Steel for their Saturday show at The Conservatory.

CREATIVE FREEDOM
With the freedom to create, Elstner said Riddle's sound has developed since the last record, "Got This Feelin'," which featured vocals with the cold delivery of The Strokes and guitar parts that cut like knives.

"It's definitely a gradual, sort of organic thing," he said. "I don't think we ever sat down and decided we wanted to write this kind of record." "Bryan Mangieri
