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.

Murder by Death - Red of Tooth and Claw

None March 13th, 2008



Decidedly more murky than its 2006 album "In Bocca Al Luppo," Indiana's Southern Goth-rockers have released a "Red of Tooth and Claw," a new record that should satisfy hard-core followers, but isn't likely to turn on new ears.


The album's second track, "Ball & Chain," is an album peak with singer Adam Turla's legato croon leading a cabaret-style burlesque ballad. "Rum Brave" is a brisk and perky brawl with country shuffle drums and deft cello strings from Sarah Balliet that are hushed and eerily whimsical.


Also pleasing is "52 Ford," which has a ballroom-dance feel, understated twangy guitars and sharp, abrupt cello accents.


Unlike the group's previous albums, "Red of Tooth and Claw" leaves the impression that Turla is purposely restraining his unsettling, messy song style that has long defined the band's signature sound.
