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.

VOTD: Who you callin’ a ‘Jabroni’?

Animated and car-surfing high jinks abound in a new video from The Boom Bang.

By Matt Carney December 6th, 2011

You know anybody who looks like he should deliver pizzas?

That’s what everybody in OKC garage-punk band The Boom Bang looks like. It’s also kinda like what the guy who dressed up like a pseudo-wolfman for this video looks like, assuming that a wolfman society would ever adopt the practice of commercial food delivery.

But I digress. The song’s called “Jabroni Ramoney,” and it gets an appropriately hilarious, cheesy video where they prank booger-picking guitarist Tommy McKenzie, skateboard through an animated wonderland, totally miss no-look basketball shots, and pretend to be afraid of a guy wearing a super-hairy wig.

The single’s available as a split 7-inch with Copperheads on Okie Dope Records.

The car surfing and basketball shots are total Teen Wolf moves. The Michael J Fox movie, not the stupid M-TV show.
