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.

The Rocker - Music From The Motion Picture

None August 28th, 2008



Singer/songwriter and "The Rocker" cast member Teddy Geiger wrote most of the soundtrack to the comedy, about has-been musician Robert "Fish" Fishman, a role performed by actor Rainn Wilson, best known for his Dwight Schrute character on TV's "The Office." 

Geiger, who sings alongside Wilson in A.D.D., has a great voice and a smooth, sentimental delivery. "Living for the First Time" is restrained and well-written, with soaring choruses, cymbal crashes and simple guitar and piano accents.

"Bitter" is sweet. Faster, with sawtooth synthesizers buzzing behind acoustic guitars, Geiger sings earnestly about walking away from an unrequited love, noting he's "not bitter "¦ but he's seen better days."

Leading Vesuvius, pop singer Keith England, usually a jazz and lounge standards performer, taps Los Angeles' Sunset Strip for an attempted parody of Eighties hair metal acts in "Promised Land" and "Pompeii Nights," but the spandex doesn't quite fit.
