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.

Mumford & Sons, Magnetic Zeros to headline September music festival in Guthrie.

Zach Hale February 5th, 2013

Grammy-nominated folk-rock sensations Mumford & Sons are coming to Oklahoma. The British four-piece band will perform Saturday, Sept. 7 in Guthrie as one leg of the Gentlemen of the Road tour.

Guthrie is one of only five cities in the world — three in the United States — that will host the tour.

The mini-festival will span two nights, with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros performing Friday, Sept. 6. Other confirmed featured guests are Alabama Shakes, The Vaccines, Willy Mason, Bear's Den and Half Moon Run, with more to be announced.

Mumford & Sons guitarist Winston Marshall told Oklahoma Gazette today that the event will have a celebratory, communal feel.

"The goal is to bring people together to celebrate a specific town through music," Marshall said. "It's to bring people to somewhere they'd not been before to celebrate all the things we love. … We love places we've never been to before. Your country, for example, is fucking mental and we love it."

He added that he especially looks forward to his first trip to the Sooner State.

"People are more openly enthusiastic [in America]. I think generally there's less cynicism in your country. Also, people are prepared to travel. That's an American thing, I think," Marshall said. “Guthrie, specifically, is a town that lots of musicians rave about. They're like, 'It's fucking awesome; it's mental,' and that's why we want to go there. That's why we love touring."

Two-day tickets are $109 and go on sale at 11 a.m. Friday, exclusively at Gentlemen of the Road’s website. —Zach Hale
