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.

Liveblogging the Buffalo Lounge

Wink Burcham and Jesse Aycock

By Stephen Carradini March 13th, 2012
Hello, OKSee! It's Stephen Carradini, former Gazetteer and OKSee blogger. I've driven in from the wilds of Alabama to cover SXSW for OKG, and I am stoked about it. But enough about me. 

Appropriately, the first song that Wink Burcham and Jesse Aycock played was a Woody Guthrie tune. The duo played quiet, almost reverent folk and country tunes to the assembled listeners noshing on sandwiches, cookies and free drinks. The two traded off vocals, with Aycock further switching between pedal steel and acoustic guitar. They were joined by the next duo on stage, Desi and Cody, for a more upbeat tune with Desi on vocals. A  traditionally Oklahoman set: acoustic guitars, keening vocals, downhome lyrics and friends. 

Desi and Cody just took the stage, so away we go for set #2. Keep it tuned here.
