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.

My Morning Jacket-Okonokos

None October 12th, 2006



From the earliest days, shaggy, psychedelic-tinged indie rockers My Morning Jacket have been a band most comfortable in the live-wire environs of concert halls and theaters' sprawling, dense and often stunningly powerful, front man Jim James and his Kentucky cohorts have staked a claim as one of the best live rock bands currently working and the new, double-disc "Okonokos" is an aural reminder of precisely why.
Recorded during a San Francisco stop on the band's tour in support of 2005's "Z," this generous collection leans heavily on material from that formula-altering album, imbuing tracks like "Gideon," "Off the Record," "Dondante" and "Wordless Chorus" with a feral intensity.
The second disc trots out tracks of a more vintage nature' "Xmas Curtain," "I Think I'm Going to Hell" and the searing "Steam Engine" from the band's major label debut, "It Still Moves"' each pulsing with a incandescent energy all their own. If you're not yet a fan, these two discs just might convert you.
