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.

Interpol - Our Love to Admire

None July 19th, 2007




I'm not sure how much cocaine it takes to truly appreciate an Interpol record, but something tells me it takes even more to make one.


The latest from the New York City foursome is a definite departure from both "Turn on the Bright Lights" and "Antics." Having scored a much bigger record label (and maybe better drugs?) for its third release, the band has moved on from the garage-rock sound to a more ambient and atmospheric feel. Keyboards even make appearances, and not in even in an "Aren't keyboards clever? Hi, we're The Bravery" kind of way.


The single, "The Heinrech Maneuver," chokes out a steady drum beat, while a guitar meanders and lead signer Paul Banks asks, "How are things on the West Coast?" The 10th track, "Wrecking Ball," is beautiful and weird. Echoey and experimental, with delayed guitars, strings and wailing vocals, it is the biggest changeup on the album and a song made to be on a soundtrack.


"Our Love to Admire" is easy to admire, so go acquire.
