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.

Say it ain't so, Rick Rubin. You can't need money that bad, can you? This 15-song' wait, make that 17-song (two "bonus" tracks, yes!)' album of "hits" from werestling rockers and rappers packs the worst of more than a dozen ideas into one horrendous heap of a concept.

 

The Rock is simply not content with making terrible movies and thankfully contributed his genius to the track "If You Smell." This "song" is actually just wailing guitar solos by James Alan Johnson, laid on top of a drumbeat with The Rock's "If you smelllll what The Rock is cooking "¦ " signature intro. We do smell it, Rock, we do. Raised eyebrows your way, too, James, because I know a Kenny Loggins wannabe when I smell one.

 

Wrestler Triple H laughs and growls through "The Game," John Cena raps hard-core in "The Time Is Now" and the buxom basher Trish Stratus attempts to channel Foxy Brown or Lil' Kim, and groove her faux-sexy self through "Time to Rock & Roll."

 

If this album were entirely a joke, it would be great' but it's not, so it's not. Wrassle up a better record.
