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.

Ryan Adams - Easy Tiger


None July 4th, 2007

Recorded at the legendary Electric Lady Studio in New York City's Greenwich Village, the album finds Adams' perhaps aided by sobriety' managing to focus on writing and arranging some of his most tear-wrenching and honest songs.

 

"Oh My God, Whatever, Etc." is an album standout, as is "These Girls." Bluegrassy banjos and a mandolin punctuate "Pearls on a String" and accompany an extra-twangy Adams. The single, "Everybody Knows," is cathartic and melancholy, during which Adams wails, "You come for me in the worst of places..."

 

Those bad places have given Adams something to work through, chronicle and write about. "Easy Tiger" is wonderful album that should keep him in the best of places for some time to come.
