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.

Various artists - Crunk Hits Vol. 4


None December 6th, 2007

The most amazing thing about "Crunk Hits Vol. 4" is not that they managed to find more than a dozen "crunk hits" for a record, but that they have managed to do so on at least four occasions.

 

If you aren't familiar with the crunk genre, just think bouncy club music with less lyrics and a more repetitive talking style of vocal delivery. When Three 6 Mafia pioneered the style in the late Nineties, it stood in stark contrast to East and West Coast flavors of hip-hop, but lately the genre seems resigned to one-club-hit-wonder songs like "This Is Why I'm Hot" by rapper Mims, "Party Like a Rockstar" by Shop Boyz or "Pop, Lock & Drop It" by Huey.

 

Though it's doubtful many crunk songs or performers will celebrate long-lasting rap relevance, "Crunk Hits Vol. 4" does feature some artists like T.I., Fat Joe, Wyclef Jean and the aforementioned Three 6 Mafia, many of whom have doused their own successful style and lyrics with some crunk seasoning to capitalize on the style's recent popularity with young hip-hop fans.
