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.

Breezy Burnz — Product of My Enlightenment


Joshua Boydston May 1st, 2013

Oklahoma City's own Breezy Burnz is tough to pin down, but that's half the fun of his latest mixtape, Product of My Enlightenment, a top-to-bottom solid effort that boasts a smattering of hip-hop complete with some of the catchiest hooks the 405 ever has seen.

While he recalls Odd Future and Childish Gambino ("Beautiful," "Rappin' Ass") in some moments, and Drake and Kendrick Lamar (the remarkably produced "Everything I Want," "Ask Me If I ..."), Burnz is very much his own rapper. He's a lewd and crude dude — cheeky at moments, more thoughtful in others — but seemingly most concerned with making good-time music.

Standout "Mardi Gras Party" is the sort of genre-blending, infectious fun you could slot right in between Shwayze's "Buzzin'" and Asher Roth's "I Love College" without skipping a beat. Where most rappers would come off uneven with Air Jordans on one foot and a sandal on the other, Burnz takes it right in stride. 

Product of My Enlightenment is available as a pay-what-you-will download at breezyburnz.bandcamp.com. —Joshua Boydston
