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.

Justin Timberlake-FutureSex/LoveSounds


None September 21st, 2006

Few artists have invested more energy in freeing themselves from their past than Justin Timberlake; his fierce determination to demolish his pretty-boy pop image is, at times, awe-inspiring' having successfully stepped out on his own with 2002's "Justified," Timberlake spent the intervening years jet-setting, holding court with Cameron Diaz and remaining one of the sprightliest falsettos in the business.

A wolfish come-hither delivered by a wisecracking lothario, Timberlake's sophomore solo effort "FutureSex/LoveSounds" is a slick, stylish, hip-hop-infused joint that boasts several devastatingly cool cuts, but lacks an overall cohesion; the inescapable, staccato single "SexyBack" juts and jags while the roiling nocturnal jam "My Love" smolders through the speakers, thanks to a laid-back T.I. cameo. Despite its polish, much of the record feels airless and sterile; there's no doubting Timberlake's skill at evoking vintage Prince and Michael Jackson throughout, but his songs hold the listener at arm's length, on the outside looking in.
