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.

David Byrne & Brian Eno - Everything That Happens Will Happen Today

None August 28th, 2008


Two pioneering rock heavyweights' Talking Heads founder David Byrne and producer, musician and ambient aesthetician Brian Eno' have again collaborated in "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today," a bounding compendium of interesting and enjoyable songs.

Byrne and Eno collaborated previously for "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts," the seemingly important but largely unlistenable 1981 album.

"Everything" is a lot of things. The folksy "My Big Nurse" is appealing, with steady guitar strumming and harmonic background atmosphere. Things get wonderfully weird on "I Feel My Stuff," which has a falsetto Byrne echoing above undulating electronic beats and melodic meanderings.

The title song is accessible and just morose enough, with a gospel shimmer and a slight tremble in Byrne's voice. It's on songs like this that Eno's added ambience and electronic tremolo is most effective, providing a cinematic underscore and character to songs that have recognizable features, but unidentifiable details.
