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.

Keller Williams - 12


None January 31st, 2008

SCI Fidelity

Songwriter Keller Williams has released "12," an album the Virginia singer touts as his "hitless greatest hits" career-spanning album.

 

His trademark guitar style and story-song vocal delivery is again delivered in each of "12"'s dozen tracks, which were culled from his different records.

 

"Anyhow Anyway," from his "Buzz" LP, is desolate and a bit spooky, in a folksy Phil Collins way, with additional female vocals added by Barbara Nesbit. Upright bass punctuates "Tribe," and a full band' complete with drums, bass, violin and hammered dulcimer' marks "Breathe," which Williams recorded in 1999.

 

With tracks spanning more than 20 jamming years of songs from a college-dorm favorite, "12" has some of the best from the Williams catalog, plus "Freshies," a previously unreleased, reggae-inspired chill-out song .

 

If are trying to get your filthy tent-mates psyched up about this summer's Bonnaroo Music Festival early, "12" will help remind them of the joys of hemp necklaces, sunburns and smelly women.
