Hear Nebraska has recently relocated its HQ’s to the Benson neighborhood in Omaha. The creative culture is constantly bubbling out of every orifice this neighborhood has to offer, so it is great to see these nostalgic photos and understand the community’s roots.

As the sixth installment of Teenage Mutant Ninja Techo blazed through the Bourbon Theatre, blaring the electronic beats through the ceiling, HN’s Thomas Yim was there to capture the events, as well as play the musical event himself. Among those that played were up-and-comers Shark Week, DJ Darryl, DJ Advocat in the Rye Room and Mr. Pojo, DarkGrey, Arbiter, Cake Eater and Cocky Cat kept the party going in the Main Room. Check out an original Cake Eater song played that night, captured by Yim, here.

While most of us haphazardly stumbled through the French Quarter in New Orleans on New Years Eve after the Black Lips concert… or wait, that was just me. Nonetheless, Big Harp was busy introducing a new track entitled, “New Year.” Stream the track here right now!

"Dead Girls" by Millions of Boys | Music Video from Hear Nebraska on Vimeo.

Omaha rock band Millions of Boys has one of those basements that everyone fears: the ones with dead girls. As terrifying as that sounds, (although I’m sure some are very intrigued), the song is definitely a catchy tune. Don’t let those zombie chicks scare you, tune in and watch the full video. Also, go ahead and buy the band’s new album, Competing for Your Love, digitally at Golden Sounds Records.

Cowboy Indian Bear may be best described as a collective of four one-man bands that comes together to do something great. After recently signing to KC label The Record Machine in 2010, the band has frequented Omaha and Lincoln quite regularly. Recently, Cowboy Indian Bear did a Daytrotter Session and Hear Nebraska did an interview with band member C.J. Calhoun to talk about the experience.

A Lincoln supergroup of sorts, Low Horse consists of members from The Machete Archive, Good With Guns, JV AllStars, The Incredible Heat Machine and Maria Taylor. The band recently played their new song “Rings,” at Plan C Recording Studio's Open House Oct. 23, 2011. The video was caught by newly formed audio and video collective Sound Surveillance. Their goal is to help grow the local music, arts and night life scene with photo and video. Watch the video and check out their great work!

Capgun Coup's frontman Sam Martin accompanies HN's Steven Ashford and Thomas Yim on a trip to the rolling hills of Hanscom Park in South-Central Omaha. Shot in the back of an old, brick apartment complex on 30th and Pacific, Sam delivers a slow, spooky folk original with his song, “Morbid Masters,” that gives listeners an eerie chill that emulates the chill weather experienced with shooting this video.

Omaha indie band Thunder Power have released their brand new video for “Foreign Soil” today with Hear Nebraska. The video, which is a track from their soon-to-be-released debut full-length, Death, Love, and the Cycle, captures last summer’s west coast tour of the crew as they bathe in the waters among the redwoods, swim in those fun little hotel indoor/outdoor pools, check out the sites, and, of course, play live music. A version of the song that was mastered slightly differently appears on the Hear Nebraska: Vol. 1 compilation under the name “Who Am I.” Enjoy!

Once again, a fresh batch of Nebraska-related tunes are among us for our state and the rest of the world to enjoy. In this third installment of An Incomplete Guide to Nebraska, HN’s John Wenz examines a wide range of outsiders views of Nebraska. Some of these are as obvious as Moe’s funky little groove jam “Nebraska” to the not so subtle mention of the 402 in Ludacris’ “Area Codes.” Go ahead and dig on in this article to see what John accumulated this week.
