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.

Various artists - Juno: Music from the Motion Picture


None February 21st, 2008

f='http://www.okgazette.com/bestofokc' target='_blank'>best (if not the best) movies in 2007. Combining songs by bands and artists you know with obscure performers and ones you might not expect to be revived on a soundtrack, the album is super-fun and easy to enjoy.

 

With classics like "A Well Respected Man" by The Kinks or "I'm Sticking With You" by The Velvet Underground mixed with Scottish poppers Belle & Sebastian and Sonic Youth, the album is a low-key, mostly acoustic affair. Even Buddy Holly makes an unexpected appearance with "Dearest."

 

Most of the signature folksy "Juno" tracks come courtesy Kimya Dawson, the female voice in the now-defunct Moldy Peaches (which are also on the soundtrack). Her funny little songs barely fit with the music or rhythm of the lone acoustic guitar backing her up, but manage to be likable and endearing. The movie's two leads, Michael Cera and Ellen Page, perform the duet "Anyone Else but You," on the CD. And, shockingly, it's pretty good.

 

Pick up the "Juno" soundtrack along with the eventual DVD.
