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.

ACM@UCO at two venues on Thursdays

By Stephen Carradini January 25th, 2011

ACM@UCO is really working hard to put young musicians into the Oklahoma City scene. The school has just secured two residencies of sorts for its bands at Nonna’s Purple Bar and The Blue Note.

Nonna’s, 124 E Sheridan, will feature two ACM@UCO bands from 7-10 p.m. every Thursday. The Blue Note, 2408 N. Robinson, will host student bands from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on the first Thursday of every month.

This week (Jan. 27), Nonna’s will feature Elspeth Brown and the jazz/pop of Wunderjazz.

On Feb, 3, Molly Blanton and Taylor Gary will play folky sets at Nonna’s, while Ghostlight Army, Of the Tower and Between the Devil will kick it a bit more loudly at Blue Note.

Support these musicians, Oklahoma City. If we’re lucky, they’ll stick around, and the scene will grow. And more musicians means more music, which means nothing but good things. Not that you shouldn’t be supporting other bands, ‘cause you should. But if Oklahoma City is a good place to be for young musicians, it’s a good place to be for music listeners like you and me.
