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.

Don Peris - Go When the Morning Shineth

None January 25th, 2007

From Pennsylvania came the cold and The Innocence Mission. "Bright As Yellow" on the "Empire Records" soundtrack may have been the highest level of notoriety the dream-folk band achieved since beginning in the late Eighties. The band fell somewhere between adult contemporary and cult status with classic-rooted compositions tailor-made for NPR segues. Today, from a couple leagues below sea, comes co-founder of The Innocence Mission, Don Peris, and his remarkable solo album, "Go When the Morning Shineth."
Biblical in name, astrological in ambience' the record shines completely; two sparse vocal tracks and gorgeous chunks of starlight guitar emanate the magic stuff, leaving images of Parisian sidewalk waltzes, teenage lovers and/or fisherman sunsets. Throughout "Shineth," Peris' North Star zips about looking for Henry Mancini, some nature, Radiohead and Yo Yo Ma, only to land in the strange place that this record loves so much but can't verbally define.'Danny Marroquin
