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.

Henry McMinn of Oklahoma City's Audyssey Studios said the hardest thing about recording other people's music is the people themselves.
 
"Everybody's got the McDonald's and Wal-Mart mentality: They want you to do it as fast as you can and have it sound as perfect as you can for the minimal amount of money," he said. "The hardest lesson "¦ was dealing with those kinds of people (who) don't want to spend any money, and they don't want to really take the time it takes to get a good product."
 
TALENT IS KEY
McMinn said many people don't understand the recording and mixing process.
 
"You just don't move a few faders and it sounds good; you got to go in and tweak things and add compression and different effects on the vocals and whatnot, and that takes time," he said. 

Talent is a key element in every great recording.
 
"They kind of have to have an idea of what it is they're wanting to do, not just 'I want to be a rock star,'" he said. "It's gotta be something they love doing." " Bryan Mangieri
