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.

P.O.D. - When Angels & Serpents Dance

None April 17th, 2008



Thank god P.O.D. has a new album, because my Korn records just weren't fueling my angsty aggression anymore.

"When Angels & Serpents Dance" is the latest rap-metal delight from the San Diego rockers. P.O.D., which, for the uninitiated, stands for "Payable on Death," a promise this crappy band has yet to fulfill.

In "Shine with Me," lead singer/talk rapper Sonny Sandoval directs you to shine with him "like the beautiful star you are "¦ ," then he gets frustrated at your lack of shining, sings "la, la, la" and then growls, demanding you "SHINE ON! SHINE ON!"

The title of song three, "Condescending," says more than any review ever could. The proud-of-my-state "Kaliforn-Eye-A" is a horribly awful neighborhood anthem and devotion to keeping "things on the down low "¦ on the streets of San Diego."

The rest of the album falls into the same sad Dr. Seuss cadence: Blaze/days, streets/eat, wife/life, first/worst, line/time. "When Angels & Serpents Dance," we can join them' because the only reason to celebrate would be the demise of this awful act.
