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.

Darrell Scott-The Invisible Man


None August 31st, 2006

If Garth Brooks were to make a predominantly acoustic album, it would probably sound a lot like Darrell Scott's "The Invisible Man." Concerned mostly with spirituality and everyday struggles, Scott has created a collection of anthems that straddle the line between country, contemporary bluegrass, pop and even rock.
 
The opening "Hank Williams' Ghost" is a down-home paean to overcoming hard times, while "Shattered Cross" is a haunting pedal steel and mandolin ballad about life lessons learned. The middle portion of the album' "I'm Nobody," "And the River is Me"' is unfortunately less compelling, with Scott abandoning his strong vocal inflections in favor of spoken word. The rest of the album, however, finds Scott back in top form with the pseudo-Cajun waltz "The Dreamer" and the closing "In My Final Hour," a pop-rocker that finds Scott pondering his own salvation. For the most part, "The Invisible Man" is a delightful, if uneven, listen for those who desire music that digs deeper than mainstream country radio.
