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.

The Baldwin Brother-Return of the Golden Rhodes


None October 19th, 2006

TVT

Some will never give The Baldwin Brothers a chance on name alone. It's their loss, for these Baldwins are not preening, fatuous members of the Hollywood acting dynasty, but a snappy, headstrong Chicago-based duo with a diabolical bent for heady brews of electronic-based jazz-funk.
 
Like their 2002 debut, the long-in-development follow-up "Return of the Golden Rhodes" offers nü-lounge tracks with traces of Seventies kitsch plopped atop a forever-melodic bed of beats. Amidst samples and scratches, their signature Rhodes electronic piano bounces throughout like a party host in a smoking jacket, at the ready to fill your glass or crack a joke.
 
Mostly instrumental, "Return" boasts guest stars when appropriate, including members of Queens of the Stone Age, Basement Jaxx and Lo-Fidelity Allstars. If no collaboration quite reaches the giddy heights of their debut's "Dream Girl," it's not for a lack of trying. Winning, infectious "¦ and not a Stephen among them.
