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.

OKSee in 2011: The 7 worst song lyrics


One last list for you.

By Matt Carney December 28th, 2011

As it so happens, they’re all from the same song.

And also as it so happens, that song came from the mind of Will.i.am, which is no surprise when you consider his propensity for recording outright terrible music. Stale rhymes, pathetic grabbing-at-straws repetition, leaning on a boner as a shock-value crutch, scatological tendencies — it’s all good for ol' Will! Just be sure to watch that video, which probably made Adam Levine regret ever telling the entire world that he has moves like Mick Jagger.


7. “I’ma kill the game, leave the rest in pieces / now everybody want my recipes,” will.i.am. — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

6. “Oh my goodness / this beat is so hard,”* will.i.am. — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

5. “I go hard / statues,” will.i.am. — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

4. “Hard like geometry / trigonometry / this is crazy psychology!” Mick Jagger — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

3. “I woke up in the mornin’ / hard like mornin’ wood in the mornin’”

2. “I’ma go hard like a motherfuckin’ boner,” will.i.am. — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

1. “This beat is the shit / feces,” will.i.am. — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”



*Editor’s note: The beat is, in fact, not hard at all.
