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.

The Downers-Shake the Dead and Let the Downers Die

None December 14th, 2006


Sickboy Records

Utah's five-man The Downers play the psychedelic pop of Big Star and do it very well. This five-song sampler will trance you out like a Quaalude from 1974. It's good' Paul Burke's vocals are mesmerizing.
The Downers are not a throwback, but rather the group transports its genre into the future. "Shake the Dead and Let The Downers Die" is a quality album with feeling, pumping new blood into the ancient, stoned vibe' another flicker in the strobe. I dug it the most.
