Music Made Me: Josh Hogsett

Few, if any, Oklahoma bands have seen a rise as meteoric as Tallows over the past year, yet its seemingly overnight ascension didn’t happen by chance. The Oklahoma City four-piece is well-versed in the ways of modern pop songwriting, drawing from both glitchy electronica and cathartic indie rock in equal measure. Last year, the band pulled off a rare musical feat with its debut album, Memory Marrow, which was steeped heavily in the breadth of recent history yet managed to sound like nothing else before it.

Planting the seed

Chelsey Cope’s new band, Elms, is as earthy and native to Oklahoma as the trees that are their namesake. The soulful folk four-piece’s debut EP, Parallel Lines, was recorded at Bell Labs Recording Studio in Norman and is on its way in September. But the band has already given us a tease, with its first single, “Burn,” going live on SoundCloud on July 14.

David Lynch — Good Day Today/I Know


Enjoyable electronic tunes from David Lynch (yes, that one)

Rod Lott January 24th, 2011

Modern cinema's reigning mad genius — David Lynch, of course — tries his hand at electronic music with a two-song EP entirely written, performed, produced and vocalized by the man himself.

While it's not out of the question one of its cuts may become a dance club fixture, the disc is best experienced — and an experience it is — via headphones.

"Good Day Today" is an optimistic, up-tempo number beget from an initial burst of chaotic static. With lyrics referencing angels, the sweetened-past-recognition voice of Lynch spreads cheer, albeit in only the way he can; a recurring synth note could come straight outta "Twin Peaks." And what's the sudden burst of machine gun?

"I Know" is like the mirror image of "Good Day Today": slow, smoky, sinister, even a little disturbing. But there's a groove there, however dingy, not unlike the work of Tom Waits or Nick Cave.

Although there are only two songs, the EP contains 10 tracks; the rest is comprised of a radio edit for "Good Day Today" and several remixes for both tunes. From the bunch, Underworld's is certainly, unsurprisingly the shiniest of all. Boyz Noize, fuzzy; Diskjokke, full of handclaps and Jan Hammer homages; Sasha, foreboding; Skream, stripped-down; Ratcliffe, rubbery to the point of frustrating; and Jon Hopkins, a nice rendering of "I Know" that bests the original. —Rod Lott
