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.

Neil Diamond' Dreams


None November 17th, 2010

while there's nothing wrong with that, either, the production' courtesy of Mr. D' sounds curiously flat. Even at high volumes, these "Dreams" don't crackle like they should.

In what feels like an end-stage retrospective, Diamond tackles a pair of Beatles tunes ("Yesterday" and "Blackbird") alongside tunes by The Eagles, Bill Withers and himself ("I'm a Believer"). Only one feels close to being infused with spirit (ironically, Gilbert O'Sullivan's easy-listening staple "Alone Again (Naturally)") and only one actually is. Thankfully, it's a stunner: Leonard Cohen's moving "Hallelujah." In Diamond's version, you pay attention not to the voice behind it, but the pure poetry of the lyrics. "”Rod Lott
