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.

Peach — Peachy-P

Matt Carney December 21st, 2011

Get it? “Peachy-P”? As in, “Peach EP”? Well, I thought it was kinda funny.

On its 15-minute debut, Oklahoma City fusion trio Peach seems content playing on words and naming the last song “Short Record.” And setting its genre at “metal” when it pulls up in the listener’s iTunes library.

For all this and the casual, greasy-lounge feel of some of these songs, I wonder how serious these guys are (certainly more so than a local rap submission I received earlier this year from something called Keezy Mac), because Aslan Crawley demonstrates some serious John Mayer-type guitar chops here.

“Ain’t No Rehab” stands out in particular, riffing all over the place before spilling out lines like “Ain’t no doctor to stitch this back together, babe!” It’s funny and endearing, the kind of pop hook you don’t hear often enough from local artists.

If anything’s wrong with “Peachy-P,” it’s that it’s awfully short, but I suppose that’s probably a product of the band’s short existence. Bassist Kevin Dunaway and drummer Connor Pruitt seem more like a backdrop in the rhythm section, but given more time together, they’ll morph into a propulsive force.

And bonus points for the individually placed wax seal on the EP, dudes! Anybody who ever put anything out on SST Records — while I doubt they’d care much for your genre — would be proud of that finishing touch. —Matt Carney
