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.

Deer crossing


Yes, its title is ‘Explorgasm.’

By Joshua Boydston January 17th, 2012

Stillwater indie-rockers Deerpeople unveiled their newest record “Explorgasm,” at midnight last night as a name-your-own price download. On first listen, the five-song EP matches the group’s stellar, self-titled, 2010 debut blow for blow, with an added propensity for Afrobeat sensibilities, à la Vampire Weekend or Ra Ra Riot.

The album also will be released on 10-inch vinyl, which the band hopes will arrive from the pressing plant in time for by 9 p.m. Friday for its release show at Opolis with friends The Non Horse Thief.
    
Expect a full review of “Explorgasm” in the very near future.
 
You can listen to and download the record below, and you can head over to Deerpeople's Bandcamp page to name your price for the album.
