Power Pyramid - Power Pyramid

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.

Spring has sprung!

So here are some videos about it.

By Stephen Carradini April 1st, 2011

So it seems that spring has finally sprung. Here’s a batch of upbeat music videos to watch once the sun has gone down to remind yourself of how awesome the next day of warm goodness is going to be.

Katie Costello’s “Cassette Tape” is a sunshiny pop track with a too-cute video made of paper cutouts. Yep: Etsy-tastic.

Sweet Thing’s “Change of Seasons” is too timely to not mention. And the song rocks. And the video features swimsuits, blow-up instruments, hula hoops and a massive block party. Yes, yes, yes.

Tiny Animals’ “Wait for Me” combines live action and what look like life-size cutouts (although they could be digital) in the vid for the electro-pop tune. Take that, Katie Costello!

And finally, Megafaun’s video for “Carolina Days” is absolutely hilarious. Just watch it. I won’t even try to explain it.
