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.

VOTD: Watch Roger Waters on Jimmy Fallon


Help celebrate Pink Floyd Week on the late-night show!

By Matt Carney September 29th, 2011

It’s not exactly super-often that any founding members of one of history’s most seminal bands really say much in public, so it was very cool to see Mr. Waters show up Tuesday on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Here’s a great little nugget from his interview with Fallon:

“One of the tutors in our first year was a man called Mike Leonard … and he had a Volkswagen van and a Farfisa organ, so we let him be in the band.”



Waters went on to play the gritty, organ-haunted song “In the Flesh” off “The Wall” alongside the Foo Fighters. Dude really seemed to get a bang out of it.



Waters also had compliments for The Shins singer James Mercer and his band’s gentle, true-to-form take on “Breathe” from “Dark Side of the Moon.” “What a great singer that kid is,” he said. Watch the band’s Monday-night appearance:



MGMT, which played Fallon last night, probably owe more to the legendary English psychedelics more than any other band on the bill for this week. Watch its version of plunky, 1960s super-spy-themed "Lucifer Sam." Also, they're dressed like fisherman.



Watch tonight for Dierks Bentley’s cover of “Wish You Were Here” and Pearl Jam playing “Mother.” Thanks, Jimmy!
