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.

Better Cheddar

Check these music videos to improve your mood.

By Stephen Carradini March 1st, 2011

After seeing a rather traumatizing video (no matter what side of the divide you're on), I decided to clear my head (and yours) with some music videos.

Australian singer Lenka dropped this charming video for Valentine's Day. If you like indie visual design and/or bangs, you'll love this vid. Look for an OKG review of her new album, "Two," soon.

Young the Giant released an enigmatic (but awesome; wait for the end) video for ace single "My Body." The band looks like it's a blast to see live; catch them next Wednesday, the 9th, at Opolis.

The Kill Van Kulls (featured in this OKS) go surfing in the '70s. Yep.

L'Altra (also featured in this OKS) also repurposed old footage, but they pulled from the 1963 Jean-Luc Godard film "Contempt." (marginally NSFW, FYI)

There. I hope you feel better now. I do.
