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 - Now That's What I Call Classic Rock


None July 10th, 2008

music older than last week with "Now That's What I Call Classic Rock" (note the absence of the exclamation point, as if excessive punctuation is not needed to sell the theory).

The disc contains 20 tracks, all of which likely can be heard on KRXO-FM 107.7 on any given day. Twice. This includes songs that will remind you of being at a sporting event (Queen's "We Will Rock You"), of renting John Carpenter's "Christine" on VHS from Sound Warehouse (George Thorogood's "Bad to the Bone"), of scalping tickets at the Zoo Amphitheatre (Steve Miller Band's "The Joker"), and of preferring the mid-Eighties Heart when Nancy Wilson was kinda hot to the Seventies Heart (Heart's "Barracuda").

For every good song (The Who, David Bowie), there's dreck like Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama." Sorry, Skynyrd fans, but once your song title becomes a Patrick Dempsey movie, its time has passed.
